Because of the Gospel, unity and diversity do not compete with one another in the body of Christ. This is especially true for college students on all the campuses in the Birmingham area. Why should our identity as Jeff State, UAB, BSC, or Samford students separate us, when the Gospel brings us all together? At our 2nd Annual Iron City College Retreat, we’ll have an opportunity to practice unity and diversity in Gospel community through resting, playing, eating, and studying the Scriptures together. Here’s to new relationships!


When: Saturday, February 16 – Sunday, February 17
We’ll meet and carpool from Valleydale Church at 9am Saturday and return by noon Sunday. If you are needing to leave early for other commitments on Sunday morning, please indicate that on the registration form.
