"But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy,
made us alive with (Jesus) Christ even when we were dead in
transgressions - it is by grace you have been saved."
(Ephesians 2:4-5)

Youth Group Recap Of Winter Weekend in Tuscarora, 2014

Tonight we were blessed to hear from our Youth Group and how God touched their lives during the Winter Weekend retreat at Tuscarora. The youth shared with us some of the funny stories from the weekend. They told us about the sports they played and the snow tubing they enjoyed. They sang some of the songs they learned and even had all the adults doing some of the silly songs and motions. Hearing the joy in the kid’s voices as they told their stories and seeing the bond they share as Christian friends was heartwarming. However, the part that was the most touching was to hear how God worked in their hearts. The children shared about how they need to surround themselves with friends that share their faith so they can be held accountable. They also talked about how important it is to share our beliefs with non-believers so they can also learn about God’s love. They gave a visual presentation about how we as sinners are damaged but when we go to the Lord and ask forgiveness we are repaired and our souls are clean.

Thank you to each of the children for sharing their experiences. Thank you to each of the leaders that chaperoned the trip. We heard from one of the children that they asked God into their heart as their personal Lord and Savior that weekend. After hearing that it was clear what a life altering experience it was. Please continue to pray for the children that the lessons they learned will remain with them throughout their lives.
