What a wonderful, exhausting, energizing, and praise-worthy Winter Retreat weekend we experienced at the high school and junior high levels. God was moving in the hearts of so many students, it was amazing to say the least! Here are some of the highlights from the retreat:
-90 students attended (40 j.h.) (50 s.h.)
-17 leaders attended (10 j.h.) (7 s.h.)
-10 different parents who drove either to or from Winter Retreat in either or both weekends. This means that the only travel cost was renting a 15 passenger van. (These parents, you know who you are, are ROCK STARS!!! Way to brave the cold and snow and bad driving conditions!!!)
-Over $1500 was given by people from Calvary Bible Church so that students could be able to attend; that would be 15 students receiving a Full Scholarship to go to Winter Retreat. (Love the super generous hearts of people at Calvary Bible Church).
-At least 7 students made first time decisions to trust in Jesus as their Savior!!!
–Many more students repented of sin in their lives and made a declaration to follow Jesus with every aspect of their lives.
This is only a snap shot of all that God did; I am excited to share more stories from students when Calvary has their first Celebrate Sunday of 2015 on Sunday, March 1st. Please join us for that Sunday morning celebration!!
One quick reminder, there is a Missions Team Meeting this Sunday (February 8th) from 12 – 1:30pm. As well, look for the Parents vs Teens Sign-Up Sheet at the Connection Center this Sunday. The battle is only 1 month away!!!
