Winter Retreats

Each year, we look for a new theme for our teen winter retreats. Near the end of July, Nathan was at Ollie’s (good stuff cheap) and saw large packs of heavily discounted fireworks. From that observation, the ideas began to flow . . . think of all the things you could do with fireworks and sparklers for a winter retreat!! Why don’t you come and be part of that great fun. Oh yes, don’t forget to pray for snow. We need the snow for the snowballs.

The retreats are scheduled for February 7 – 9 and February 14 – 16. Hopefully in the near future we will be able to have our winter retreats on our own property, but again this year, we will have the retreats at the Timberwind Log Cabin Lodge. If you are a teen in the 7th through 12th grade, why don’t you join us for a great time of physical, emotional, and spiritual refreshment? For more information Click here.

2nd Winter Retreat

The deer we saw at Timberwind Lodge were not the highlight of the weekend, but they did add an extra element of excitement. We even had some doe trying to play with the balls. I thought the picture on this blog might catch your attention.
Although the weather was very different than the first winter retreat, we had an outstanding time together. Our Evangelist was Dan Brubaker. It was very exciting to have an evangelist that was called to preach at Servant’s Heart Camp. This is how Dan describes his call to preach – In God’s perfect timing, He placed Dan at Servant’s Heart Camp, where the games, preaching, and spiritual atmosphere made a difference on his life. On Friday, June 13, 2003, the preacher began by announcing the title to his message and Dan knew he would not be staying in his seat during the invitation. He offered himself for the Lord’s service to be used in whatever way He would be pleased. Ever since then, Dan has had a strong desire for the ministry of evangelism, and he believes that this is the direction God has for his life.
We had another exceptional retreat with great fun, games, fellowship, and preaching from God’s Word. It is super exciting to see young people making commitments for the Lord.
