    On Friday night, Saturday morning, and Saturday night, we will have main sessions with worship led by the RealLife Band, talks from seniors about what God has taught them during college, stories of how God is at work in our lives, and time in Spring Retreat pods (no worries, we will assign these when you arrive!) where we will discuss what we are learning.

    Time for Fun in Community

    Spring Retreat is a great opportunity to meet new friends and deepen relationships with old friends. From intentional conversations in your Spring Retreat pod, to playing games and having fun during free times, to competing alongside your class in the annual Clash of Classes, there are so many opportunities to connect.

    Time to Connect with God and Reflect

    Spring Retreat is a great time to connect with God individually and as a movement of Cru at Ohio State. Throughout the weekend we will celebrate what God has done in our lives this year by hearing stories, talking with one another, and by worshiping God together. We'll also have time alone with God on Saturday morning to give us a chance to slow down and connect with God by reflecting on the year or just enjoying time with Him.

    Main Sessions

    • It is a tradition at Spring Retreat to have graduating seniors from our Cru movement deliver the talks at the retreat. This year we'll have a chance to hear from some of our seniors as they reflect on what God has taught them during college, and what they want to leave the movement with as they move on.
    • Throughout the weekend we will be led in worship by our amazing RealLife band. The weekend will conclude with an extend time of worship to celebrate God for all he has done and is doing in our midst.
    • On Saturday night we will have a chance to send off our Seniors by praying over them and looking ahead to their futures as well as our future as a movement.
