Pitch and Praise is a weekend for our sr high students to go outside: we go outside of ourselves (and literally outside!) and open ourselves up to who God is and what He is doing. For four days full of laughing, games, speakers, music, dancing, tuck shop, french fries, and maybe some tears, God will ask us to open up a bit (or maybe a lot).
This year’s Pitch theme is RHYTHMS. We will discover new ways we can thrive by adopting Godly patterns of living that bring us new life and ongoing strength.
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the un- forced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
Matthew 11:28-30 – The Message
Pitch and Praise – May 19-22, 2017
Pitch and Praise is an outdoor camping retreat that takes place every year over the May long weekend. We’ve been going to Pitch for six years now and always have a fantastic time. Some of our leaders went when they were in high school and still love going – that’s how awesome it is. The weekend combines great general sessions with sports and gaming tournaments, workshops, prayer experiences, movies, and so much more. And we camp the whole time!
The early bird rate for Pitch and Praise is $130 if you register before April 30. It’s a great deal that covers all your food and activities for the weekend. After the 30th, the price goes up to $150, so register now and save that cash for those french fries!
We want as many people as possible to come to this event. Subsidies are available upon request. Just contact Tom Fenske for more information.
