We are celebrating that over the past two weekends, over 870 students and leaders attended the 24Seven and Fusion retreats at Carolina Point! These weekends were full of energy with worship, teaching, games, and time spent in reflection and community for our students.
The Authentic retreat, for our 7th and 8th graders, explored the idea of how our identity and sense of self is easily rooted in things outside of God. This weekend helped our students find where they are searching for identity, and they learned that who God has made them to be is more significant than anything they could have imagined for themselves.
The Tribe retreat, for our 5th and 6th graders, focused on how God has given us a powerful gift that we often overlook or take for granted: relationships. Students learned how family, friends, and church community provide relationships that can help build their understanding and faith in God.
In addition to teaching, worship, and small groups, students were also able to have fun together and ride go karts, participate in team sports, and enjoy lots of other activities! We are so thankful for the additional 230+ volunteers and staff who helped plan and served on these retreats on the worship team, work crew, AV, program, and more. Join us in praying that God continues to work in the hearts of these students, for the Spirit to move in conversations with their parents, and that there is growth in their lives from the seeds that were planted on these retreats.
