Come “Rise Up” at the CCIW Mid Winter Retreat which is an amazing 24 hour event held every year for grades 6th -12th. It is an opportunity for the youth of our region to reunite with friends and other people that they have met throughout the region. We engage in Godly play, mission, key notes, discussion, and worship. Join us and renew your spirit with your fellow disciples. This year Mid Winter Retreat will be hosted by Eureka Christian Church and Eureka College. Please arrive at Eureka Christian Church on Saturday 1/20 between 11AM – 12:45PM for check in.

Coupons Needed

Manufacturer’s Coupons are being collected to help fill a service project during the Youth Midwinter Retreat. Youth will have the opportunity to cut and sort coupons for Coupons for Troops.

Coupons, especially those for food items and baby supplies, help military families cut the cost of living abroad. Please put your donated coupons in the basket located outside of the church office.
