Our students returned Monday night from their second annual winter retreat near Buffalo, New York. They stayed at Circle C Ranch and participated in much of the camp worship times and Bible study. They also were able to mix in some fun as well (snow skiing, snow boarding, buffalo wings, contests in the car among the guys on who could keep their shirt off the longest with windows rolled down in frigid temps, etc). I believe that retreats are great opportunities for spiritual growth. God was at work among our students and leaders on this trip. I am very proud of them and our student Pastor, Milo Wilson. Even the camp staff in New York remarked how well behaved our group was. This Sunday we will see a short video of their trip in the morning worship. If your middle or high school son or daughter isn't involved in our student ministry, why not get them plugged in this month. These are formative times in their spiritual development. Don't miss these opportunities!
