As Christians, we are citizens of God's kingdom, yet we are still here in this world. We are a people on the edge, or the verge, between places. At the Fall 2018 Retreat, we will investigate how we can experience God daily and how to live, so we do not become burdened by the world but instead are a sign that points to God. 1 Peter 2:10-12
We need 5-6 local-church speakers, youth testimonies, and a band for Spring Retreat 2019. We also need servant-leaders, both youth and adults, to assist with planning, logistics, setup, break-out sessions, discussion, snacks, and clean-up. Since we are the Church, we will divide the work so that no one will do it all, and so that the Holy Spirit can bless us as we share our gifts with each other. Join the team.
There will be no Fall Retreat 2018 @ Triple R Ranch. Retreat centers now require higher down payments and percentage of anticipated attendees. The yrdyouth budget does not have funds to cover both down payments and contracted risk.
Instead, we we be holding a Fall Service Fair: Mission Possible.
