Ignite 2016 — Fall Retreat

Fall Retreat 2016 was an awesome weekend full of fun, friendship and challenges.  We wound our way through the mountains to Doubling Gap Center, home of Camp Yolijwa.  What a beautiful place to see, hear and feel the voice of God!  The theme for the weekend was”Uprising.”  Our speaker for the weekend, Jason Ostrander, did an incredible job of helping our students relate to Peter and help them realize that the characters of the Bible are not that different than themselves, nor were the challenges they faced, much different than the challenges they face each and every day in their faith!  There were many exciting activities to keep our students engaged:  A 4 mile hike up the mountain,  3 on 3 basketball tournament, rock wall, zip line, game room, snack bar, and a huge pond with paddle boats.  It was a great weekend to get away and be refreshed by God’s beautiful creation and His word.
