“Do Something”

“Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.” — Matthew 25: 45


This year’s theme, “Do Something,” focuses on faith in action and encourages youth to make a difference in their communities. Leaders can customize their youth group retreats at Lake Junaluska by choosing from one of seven program weekends in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. Groups of all sizes are welcome!
