Trail Mix of Life

Trail mix is sweet and salty, just like life! There are times when we feel like rejoicing, and moments when we have to deliberately search for blessings. Our lives are filled with joys, worries, hardships, and “ordinary times.”

All 6th to 12th graders are welcome to join us from April 21 to 23, 2023 at Montgomery Center for a study on Philippians 4:4-9 as we look at the trail mix of our own lives. The weekend will be complete with fellowship, outdoor activities, service projects, and campfires.

Sign up today!


Youth Participant: $125
Adult Chaperone: $75
A non-refundable deposit of $25 per participant is required to secure each registration.

(All are welcome! Please coordinate with your home church for group registration.)

Philippians 4:4-9: 4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
