Revolution Weekend will be a one-day retreat, hosted at Glen Lake Camp and Retreat Center, on April 24th, 2021! We will spend the full day out at Glen Lake, playing games together, worshiping together, talking with one another in small groups and taking the opportunity to do the cross hike and have some time together to relax and reset outdoors, away from the city. We hope to be able to continue to add pieces to our Revolution Weekend experience the situation regarding COVID-19 continues to improve in our area, but we are excited to be able to host our teenagers at Glen Lake for this opportunity to connect with each other.

Our theme this year is Forward. Into the wilderness, across the Jordan river and into Samaria and Judea, the story of God’s people has never been one of standing still. God calls us always farther, deeper, and into uncharted territory, knowing that true discipleship and life with Christ rarely starts where we’re comfortable.

We have spent the last year of our lives constantly having to adapt to new and unfamiliar surroundings, and we know that it has been hard and stressful. But we also know that we have a community and a God that loves us and claims us, that tells us that we belong and that welcomes us home. We don’t know what is next but what we do know is that we can take on the next adventure with the full confidence that we don’t head into it alone. Our journeys of greatest growth begin when our familiar paths end, and we are excited to see where God is calling us next, and who that journey will make us as we find a way to move forward.

We will be asking families to provide transportation for their teenagers to and from Glen Lake Camp. But, because we know it is a bit of a drive, we are excited to announce a special parent event – at the same time that Revolution Weekend is happening, we will be hosting a Parent Retreat, open to all FUMCFW Youth Ministries parents!

The Parent Retreat will also take place at Glen Lake Camp, so that parents will be able to bring their teenagers and then stay for the day, participating in an experience designed just for them on the other side of the camp. The Parent Retreat will feature an Enneagram workshop led by James Patterson, as well as other fun, enriching content! Regardless of whether or not you’ve done anything with the Enneagram before, James will help you better understand yourself, your type and your relationship with others! The Parent Retreat will also include time for parents to just talk to one another, as well as time spent playing with (or against) your teenagers in games, an opportunity to go on the cross hike and an evening worship service that will just be for the parents.

Registration will be required for both events, and we will be following our FUMCFW Youth Ministries In-Person Meeting Guidelines throughout the event. We ask that both youth and parents complete the COVID-19 Screening form prior to either event, and masks covering both the mouth and nose will be required at all times (with exceptions made for meals).
