Greetings Off Script Families,

We pray that this message finds you and your loved ones well, despite the reality of this global pandemic that has shaken us all. Please know that you and yours are in our prayers.

In light of this unprecedented interruption, for the safety of all, we have made the hard decision to cancel our 2020 Off Script Youth Retreat, set to take place May 15-17th, 2020. We understand that many of you have planned your schedules around this and appreciate your understanding and flexibility during these unforeseen times.

What happens now? Will I be refunded?

If you already prepaid and registered your child or made arrangements to serve as a volunteer, all payments will be refunded within 7 to 10 business days directly to the card used to submit your payment. If you do not receive your refund in the allotted time, please email

What about sponsorships?

We would like to say a special thank you to the individuals, families, and businesses that sponsored a child for the retreat. Please be advised that we will apply all sponsorships to Zion Church's Benevolence Fund to assist those specifically affected by COVID-19. If you have any questions regarding this, please email 

How to stay connected?

We will remain in touch and continue to share relevant information and updates as they pertain to Off Script. We would love to stay connected and remain in community during this developing chapter. As such, please see the following options to keep abreast of ways to stay plugged in:
