High School Recharge (Nov. 19-21)

Due to high school week being cancelled for summer 2021, we are going to have our high school week speaker, Julie Van Hove, come to the high school recharge and share on our theme from this past summer of Brand New! We will have skits from the summer and have several talks from Julie throughout the weekend. We are going to jam as much of high school week into a weekend as possible! You won't want to miss it!
