This past month our middle school students participated in a fall retreat to The Vineyard in Ariton, Alabama. During that trip they were able to get away and learn about how God values and loves us. This gave the students the opportunity to grow in their relationship with Him.
While at the Vineyard, Holly Rice, our Youth Intern, got to witness God working in the student’s lives. She reflects on how she saw God move throughout the weekend: “Having the students fast from being on their cellular devices for the weekend gave them, and me personally, the opportunity to disconnect from the world and live in the now. Every morning we would wake up and we would find a spot to be alone and do a devotional before breakfast. Being out in nature and spending time with God just one on one was a great experience.”
17 students participated in the retreat and 9 recommitted their lives to Christ. Praise God!
