Our Spring Retreat in Chattanooga, TN is a great opportunity to get away from your normal routine for a couple of days and to have a blast with friendly people from West End. We are going to have a memorable Saturday – rafting the Ocoee in the afternoon, and taking in local attractions Chattanooga has to offer at night! The goal is that we would grow in genuine relationship with God and each other for the good of our city. This is a great chance to make new friends, to get a taste of what our Young Professionals community is all about, and to take a step in the direction of deepening your relationship with God.
