Faith in Transition
Being a Christian in College
Saturday-Sunday, November 9-10, 2013
United Methodist youth are invited to Albion College for an overnight retreat to experience and inspire Christian living in a college setting. The program will run from noon Saturday to noon Sunday and involve a Bible Study, opportunity to get to know our Christian Living Community students and other Christians on campus, have discussions about Christian living in a college environment, and discover how Albion College students live out their Christian faith.
Youth will stay overnight in the residence halls of some of our Christian student leaders. This is part of the experience of the program.
This program is free, including lodging and all meals and snacks. Youth are not required to bring money to participate. All we ask is that youth/youth groups have their own transportation to/from Albion College.
Registration is on a first-come, first-registered basis, with limited spaces available. Youth must return a completed registration form, signed by her/him as well as a parent/guardian. We encourage early registration, and our final deadline is November 4, 2013.
