We are excited about this year’s Youth Winter Retreat because we are combining mission work in South Georgia with bringing in the New Year at Walt Disney World and Epcot!! What a great way to start off our new year together as a youth community by serving side-by-side and watching fireworks at Walt Disney World.
Our road trip begins on Wednesday, December 28th, when we head to St. Simmons and stay for 2 nights at the South Georgia Methodist Center, Epworth By The Sea. We will serve in the Savannah and St. Simmons areas for 2 1/2 days before traveling to Orlando for 3 nights and lodging at Hawthorne Suites in Lake Buena Vista. On New Year’s Eve, we will arrive to Walt Disney early in the morning and spend all day enjoying the park before the midnight fireworks celebration. After a short nights rest, we will spend New Year’s day at Epcot. We will return home on Monday, January 2nd. What a wonderful week!!
We will be driving the 4 church vans and can take 52 youth. The cost is $425.00. Please support this year’s Tree Lot by selling trees and buying a tree because the Tree Lot proceeds help supplement the cost of all of our retreats.
