Taking place right in the middle of 21 Days of Prayer, Saturate is a powerful way for you to start your year and we invite all high school and college students to come join us!
This year, Saturate will take place at the Fultondale Campus and will be a one-day retreat. Registration is $15 per student and transportation is available for both in and out-of-town campuses at no extra cost. You can find a contact information as well as a detailed transportation schedule down below.
Saturate 2022 will be cenetered around the topic of the "seceret place." In Psalm 27:4-5, it states:
"I’m asking God for one thing, only one thing: to live with him in his house my whole life long. I’ll contemplate his beauty; I’ll study at his feet. That’s the only quiet, secure place in a noisy world, the perfect getaway, far from the buzz of traffic." (MSG)
Our hope for Saturate 2022 is that every student will leave knowing the importance of having a secret place- that cultivating the one-on-one, intimate time with God is one of the best things we can do as Christians. We will center our sessions around this topic, talk in-depth about the baptism of the Holy Spirit, and get in small groups throughout the day to reflect and process the content togeher.
Once students arrive to the retreat, a full fast will begin and conclude once the last session is over. No food will be provided during Saturate but we will have plenty of waters and friendly reminders to keep everyone healthy and hydrated. We will have a first responder on-site, as well as emergency supplies on hand should an issue arise.
If there is anyone with a medical condition where food is required, we ask that you connect with a leader at your campus so that we can best care for you and make sure you have a great retreat experience as well.
Transportation is available to all students at no additional cost. You can view the PDF resource at the bottom of the page to see a detailed travel schedule for your campus.
Registration for transportation is located within the normal Saturate registration.
