LORANGER, La. (LBM) – Sixth through twelfth grade girls will be reminded how God treasures them during the upcoming Teen Girl Retreat.
The multi-site event will take place Sept. 8-9 at Camp Living Waters, Loranger, and then again on March 15-16 at Clara Springs Baptist Camp, March 15-16, offering participants to attend at the location closest to them.
“Our heart for this event is for girls to know how truly treasured they are by God, the creator of the universe,” said Louisiana Baptist Children and Youth Mission Education Strategist Erin Jones. “He loves them and created them for such a special purpose. Our prayer is that teen girls will walk away from this weekend reassured of who they are in Christ no matter what the world around them may try to tell them.”
Samantha LaRocque and Andrea Bourgeois, founders of “Holy Restored Ministry,” will be the main speakers. They will share about the importance of mental health awareness and provide coping skills from a biblical perspective.
The event also will feature a pajama, popcorn and pamper party, times of worship, missions moments, and breakout sessions.
Sept. 1 is the registration deadline. The retreat will start at Friday, 6 p.m., with check-in from 4:30-5:30 p.m., and end at Saturday, 4:30 p.m. For more information, visit https://louisianabaptists.org/event/teen-girls-retreat/
