WHAT IS ATX?
This year we are excited to be partnering with several other churches in the area (Austin Stone, Austin Oaks, Riverbend, Life Austin, Austin Ridge, Westlake Hills Presbyterian) for a City-Wide overnight weekend/retreat/conference or whatever you want to call it. Our goal is simple: to gather local student ministries together to worship Jesus, and to see the impact that God is having in their city.
WHO IS IT FOR?
ATX is open to any student that is currently in middle school and high school.
WHERE ARE STUDENTS STAYING?
Each church is resposible for their own lodging, transportation, small group leaders, host homes, etc. Our high school students at Austin Ridge SW will be staying in host homes throughout Southwest Austin and our middle school students will be staying here at the southwest campus.... If your family is interested in being a host home please let us know as soon as possible. Each home will consist of 6-8 students and a small group leader- These groups are gender and grade specific.
The cost of the weekend is $125 but if your student registers before January 17th you will get an EARLY BIRD RATE of $100. This cost includes transportation, sessions, meals, and a t-shirt. *Prices may vary by participating churches... this is because programming in between general sessions might be a little different and cost more.
DOES THIS REPLACE OUR WINTER RETREAT?
YES. We are excited about what God is doing in and through student ministries in the city of Austin. We are excited to bring several churches together for an EPIC weekend full of crazyness, games, worship, teaching, etc.
