Be My Neighbor

The Cooperative Baptist Student Fellowship (CBSF) Mid-Winter Retreat is a gathering for young adults (undergrad & graduate age-levels) from college campuses and CBFNC congregations across North Carolina. It is a chance for young adults to grow in faith and relationships, building community across the state. This year’s retreat theme is “Be My Neighbor,” and it will focus on what Jesus meant when He told us to “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:39).

Mid-Winter Retreat features large group worship, small group discussions, and opportunities for fun and recreation on the beautiful campus of Camp Caraway. Our CBFNC campus ministry staff will lead small discussion groups with the college students/young adults. The musical portions of our worship experiences will be led by Rev. Dane Jackson, minister to youth and their families at Providence Baptist Church in Charlotte.

In addition, there will be free time in the schedule. Participants can hike around Caraway Mountain, play Gaga ball and other games, fish, or do climbing wall activities
