Youth Retreat SEPT 26-27-28

Posted on Wed, Sep 17, 2008

"DEEP" Youth Retreat (Grades 6-12)

So we officially had a blast. 21 students, two dedicated adult youth leaders, three highly trained cooks, one focused bus driver, and one beleagured pastor - All locked away together at Belle View Bible Camp for three days and two nights.

While we are lousy at remembering to take pictures (we are better at forging memories), the kids had a blast, and everyone involved moved one step closer to God...towards the deeper end of the pool. We learned that God not only loves us but also likes us; that we need to take responsibility for our own spirituality and not rely on parents, youth leaders, pastors, or anybody else for where we are at; that God is with us when we go through the really deep water; and that we can make waves of our own when we learn what it means to really love our families, friends, and the world around us.

For a peek at the few pictures we did remember to take...click here...

(Missing from the photos, Wide games like Mission Impossible and Ultimate, Canoeing [towing back victoria and chanelle to shore], Wall Climbing, the first stack of pancakes that Patrick ate (this stack is the second), the one time that everybody actually sang a worship song at the same time, and other super good moments...like when God showed up.
