***Phones are allowed, but we encourage leaders to collect them during our Community Groups and worship services to help students get the most out of the weekend.

The Hunt is an intense game of hide & seek where each member of the WoodsEdge Student Ministry Staff hides around our church campus, and it’s your job to find them. Each staff member is worth a different number of points. Think you can do it?

Come to Freedom Weekend 2023 to see if you can find us!


It takes an army to disciple students and put on an event like Freedom Weekend!
We would love for you to join the team and be a part of seeing students’ lives transformed.
