Concordia University Ann Arbor invites high school students to explore God’s calling in their lives this summer during the fourth annual Trinity Time retreat. Students will learn about church work vocations by spending time with Concordia faculty and students, exploring their own sense of calling through study of the Word and through hands-on activities, and by simply growing in the grace of God and the joy of His salvation.

Trinity Time will take place July 12-13 on Concordia University Ann Arbor’s campus, 4080 Geddes Road. This overnight retreat costs $20 per participant registered before June 15, 2020, and $30 for those who register after. The registration fee covers the cost of meals, housing, and all excursions.

Trinity Time (grades 9-12)—July 12-13
