We took 9 Middle Schoolers and 3 Leaders up to Covenant Harbor for our Winter Camp from Feb 3-5th. It was an amazing weekend of worship, fellowship and play. Here are some of our highlights:
Sarah Henry from Faith Covenant Church in Wheaton was our speaker for the weekend. The theme fore the weekend was Going Live and Sarah talked through what it means to Go Live with our faith. All weekend we heard ways in which we take our faith into the everyday of our lives through the stories of Creation, David, Jesus’s death and Jesus calling the disciples.
This year at Covenant Harbor we played a game throughout the weekend – the goal was to collect beans throughout the weekend from staff members and use the beans to buy tubes or get more points. Our students worked alongside the group from Valley Covenant in Stillman Valley. We had a plan and we went hard but unfortunately we only got 2nd place!
This retreat was an amazing retreat for our group to bond together. Through the game, through play Stumpball and most of all through our small group times we were able to share in story about what God is doing in our lives. We dove deep and talked about what it looks like for us to live our faith LIVE at school and in our day to day lives.
