Join young adults from all around the West Coast who will be exploring the new thing God is doing in us through the practice of sabbath. We want to invite you and your friends to join us for three days in Arroyo Grande for the first ever Young Adults Collective where we will rest, worship and be empowered by The Holy Spirit. This is the first event where four Foursquare Districts are partnering together to host this amazing retreat (SoCal, CPD, Distrito Hispano del Suroeste and Pacific Southwest).  We are very excited to see young adults gather from all around California and beyond. 

The speakers and schedule of Collective have been framed out for you to benefit from a restful setting and pace, time to enjoy meaningful relationships, and sessions to be re-energized in heart and mind.

“See, I am doing a new thing!” -Isaiah 43:19
