Delta Streets Academy
Delta Streets Academy was formed from an after-school program and summer program targeted at young men living in or around at-risk neighborhoods. Their ultimate goal at DSA is to equip the young men that walk through their doors daily with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and the skills needed to live a life that honors God.
Delta Streets Academy embodies and promotes the spirit of individual excellence through the highest quality teachers, broad based family and community support, and Biblically based programs. Delta Streets Academy is the alternative school of choice enabling children to reach their full potential and perform successfully on standardized testing at the national level. Delta Streets Academy has become a model school for educating children regardless of their current academic and social status. As a result, Delta Streets Academy is becoming locally and regionally recognized as a school that provides the community with productive leaders.
You have the option to ride with a group from First Pres Friday and spend the night or join us Saturday morning. Let us know in your registration if you are willing to drive some friends in your car.
There is no cost, but plan to purchase your own meals and snacks.
Spring Retreat 2020
February 14 - 16, 2020
The second annual young adult spring retreat is coming up on Feb. 14-16 at Twin Lakes! Like last year, it will be a sweet time of rest and respite with old friends and new friends. This year's emphasis is on navigating relationships of every variety: parents, employers, colleagues, friendship, romance (both married and single), and more. The speakers include David Felker, Aaron Wilson, Emily Hartman, and Samuel Bolen. The weekend is full of worship and play, good food, and tons of downtime to walk in the woods, play ultimate frisbee, or sit around the fire.
