Every January, 7th through 12th grade students and faculty adventure together to The Oaks at Lake Hughes for the annual SCCS Spiritual Life Retreat to focus on the Lord and connect with each other.

“The spiritual life retreat allows our entire secondary student body to get away from the craziness of school for a couple of days to simply ‘be together’ and to focus on Him,” explains Wiley Kennedy, SCCS Campus Pastor.

“The purpose of this retreat is to kick-off the second part of the school year with all of the junior high and high school students together to communicate the same message that will both educate them and encourage them as they progress through the year.”

During the retreat, students heard from Ben Schettler, founder and President of Ask or Think Ministries. He taught on cultural engagement and gospel advancement through a Christian Worldview.  Additionally, students enjoyed various group games and activities such as an all-school game of bubble soccer. Students had free time and opportunities to participate in what The Oaks offers such as, hiking, rock climbing, a ropes course, archery and more. 

"We are blessed to be a part of a school like SCCS that commits the time and resources needed to provide a first-class, HEART training event," shared Dr. Jones.
