School of Rhetoric students had a great time at their retreat. The theme was “Undivided,” and students spent time in worship and hearing messages about being undivided in relationships, priorities, and community. They also enjoyed some friendly competition as houses competed in the first house games of the year. It was a refreshing, wonderful retreat!
