The Big Event strives to create an environment where sixth grade students can be together to connect with Jesus Christ and learn how their faith can set them on a course that will turn their teenage journey into a wonderful adventure. This year the retreat will be at Forest Glen the weekend of November 4-6, 2016.

This weekend is set apart from the other Conference Youth retreats and is distinctly different to cater to the needs of sixth graders and the ministries that they are a part of at their local church.  Because each church disciples to this group differently, some use it as a time to get to know their students, away from parents and older youth.  Other groups use it as a cornerstone to their Confirmation classes. The retreat focuses on John Wesley's threefold idea of grace and other Wesleyan ideas. There is also time for worship, small groups, outdoor recreation and mastering the art of sixth-grade-silliness.
