Emerywood Students rotate between yearly activities Spring Retreat/Trip, Fall Retreat/Winter Ski Trip, and Disciple Now retreats. Each year we participate in 2 of these activities. In addition to these events during the school year, The Student Ministry participates in UniDiversity Each July and a Mission Trip that coincides with the Church’s overall Missional Emphasis. We believe that Students are an integral part of the life of the church and therefore should participate in Intergenerational Mission opportunities with both children and adults as well.
The 2017 Winter retreat was at Disney World in January with 2000 other students from around the country in 3 different denominations. The long weekend was a fantastic time of bondingand growth as our students were challenged to put their dreams for each other and the world into words and make them a reality.
Our Fall retreat was a great weekend at Ocean Isle where we looked at what it means to be created in the Image of God and how we can better bear witness to the One who loves each of us as who we are in our core. Next Summer in addition to camp, our Students will have the opportunity to lead a mission team for a 2-week international immersion mission experience to Zambia to work alongside the Emert Family who have served there for the past 4 years.
