Your answer
Our Church strives to be a loving place where all feel welcome and safe. We want to truly live into the Apostle Paul's call to be members in the "Body of Christ" lifting one another up in ways that reflect the love of God. This being said we understand the incredible pressures that youth fell all the time about what to put into their bodies. When we are on Church related retreats that pressure is removed- you do not need to worry about pressure or expectation of others. There will be no use of alcohol- illegal substances- or tobacco on Church trips. There will also be no pressure or expectation around sexual activity. We encourage the building of wonderful healthy relationships with others, but on Church trips we focus on building the entire community. Sexual activity is also not tolerated. If there is a violation of either of these, the youth will be sent home at the parent's expense- either by parents coming to get their youth (if in driving distance) or by other arrangements being made. *
