One United Youth Ministries announces the Imprint Love Retreat at Leesburg camp the weekend of November 14-16.  The cost is $100 per person.

Imprint Love is the fourth retreat in a series of five retreats that bring to life the issue of living outside our own desires and seeking the desires of Christ. The pathway to our mission is to show a world where justice is sought, where compassion isn't just a feeling but an action, and where the love of Christ is lived out by loving others.

WARNING: This retreat can change the world!

To particpate, complete the registration form & camp waiver form and turn them into the Youth Office along with your payment.  The group will leave on Friday, November 14th at 5:45 PM and will return on Sunday, November 16th at Noon.

Registration forms and waiver forms will soon be available. Registration will begin soon!

It only requires a little training, an hour every few months, and you and your student can sign up online! To find out more, contact Jessica Hardy at
