Winter Youth Retreats
By Caroline Morales, Geremy Varner, and Sydney Reynolds
Recently, 31 of the Impact high school girls had the chance to have their annual girls retreat at Camp Oak
Haven (formerly Gulf Coast Christian Camp)! We want to extend a thank you to the 12 Christian ladies that helped plan, cook, mentor, and lead activities. The theme of the retreat was Love In Action from Romans 12 and we were so blessed to see this enacted by everyone who participated. The main speaker of the weekend was our very own Cindy Inglés, who spoke to the girls about how to be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayer. We hope to continue to see these girls’ love in action here at home!
Also, on a recent weekend the middle school youth group had its annual Winter Retreat at Camp of the Hills. We had 23 adult helpers join us to love on the 44 children that came. These 3 days were spent focused on identity, not the identity that is given by the world but the identity that is given to us as children of God. There is nothing we love more than getting to see and hear about all of the sweet memories that are created during this time.
