swote Retreat

March 31-April 2, 2017


Are you RED? What does it mean to be RED? As you read the gospels you find certain words in red. These are the words of Jesus spoken to people that he encountered throughout his ministry. Many of these people had life-changing encounters with him and it all started with the red letters. They are some of the most profound and important words in all of Scripture.

Our theme for the 40 Hour SWOTE Retreat is RED because we want to examine the red letter encounters Jesus has with various people to see how their lives were forever changed. We will also examine our own lives to see how Jesus can forever change us. To be changed means to be red, to be covered by the blood of Christ. That's what it means when we ask, "Are you RED?"

Join with youth groups from southwest Ohio Churches of Christ for the SWOTE Retreat. You will be greatly blessed by this spirit-filled and exciting weekend experience. Enjoy uplifting worship, inspiring messages, campfire singing, hilarious games, human foosball, great food, good friends, and a whole lot of fun. Plus, we will have access to the zip line, climbing wall, and giant swing. Also, Harding University's drama group, Theatron, will be with us. The SWOTE Retreat promises to be a weekend you won't soon forget.
