    Students may have their phones during round trip travel and 30 minutes on Saturday. Pastor Alex will store their phones during the rest of the retreat. Phones and their distractions greatly hinder the spiritual purpose of our time together. Should an emergency arise, you can reach Pastor Alex at 412-352-8876 or Debbie at 515-570-3950. By signing this permission, you are agreeing to this policy.
  • I give permission for my above named child to join Reach Student Ministries of the First Evangelical Free Church of McKeesport at the Winter Retreat to/at 870 River Ridge Road, Franklin, PA 16323. I understand that the group will be traveling by bus, church vans and leader cars. I also understand that the cost of the retreat includes lodging, transportation and food.

    I hereby release First Evangelical Free Church, its staff and sponsors, from responsibility and liability for any injury or illness that my child may sustain during this activity. In the event of an emergency, I hereby authorize an adult leader of this activity, as agent for me, to consent to any X-ray examination, medical, dental or surgical diagnosis; treatment and hospital care advised and supervised by a physician, surgeon, or dentist (as appropriate) licensed to practice under the laws of the state where the services are rendered, either at a doctor’s office or in any hospital. I expect to be contacted as soon as possible.
