At "Going Beyond the Mask" preteen boys will focus on redemption and how only God can truly redeem us. They will learn it is not the hero that matters, but rather the person they actually are in life. It is God who makes us worthy, not something we do.

Please Note: Dinner WILL be served Friday night at the retreat.

Activities: Mask trivia challenge, laser tag, scavenger hunt and more! There will be team competitions in gaga ball and mask relay, as well as the opportunity to build your own mask, sword and shield!
Costume Challenge: If you have a costume of a DC, Marvel, Ninjago, Incredibles, Star Wars, Bible or other hero character be sure to bring it with you to the retreat! Both homemade and store bought costumes are welcome. 
Friday Late Night Movie: Beyond the Mask!
Bible Lessons: 

Lesson 1 - God is Almighty! Isaiah 55:9
Lesson 2 - God is a giving Father! Psalm 37:4, Matthew 7:7
Lesson 3 - God's Love for Us! Isaiah 1:18, Galatians 2:20, 1 John 3:16
