Fifty-one students in grades 4, 5 and 6 learned what it means to be “Beloved” and explored their identity as beloved children of God at the C456 Extreme Winter Retreat Jan. 27 and 28 at WCC. The retreat was an overnight event designed to guide and encourage students in their relationship with Christ. Students explored topics presented during Sunday morning services, diving deeper into those topics through teaching, worship and small group discussions, and they also took time to unplug from the world and plug into God’s Word. Fun and games were also on the agenda.
“My favorite part of the event was seeing students connect with their small group leaders and have meaningful discussions about their identity in Christ,” said Jada Rhodes, C456 Program Leader. “There was also an atmosphere of teamwork and respect among students and the volunteers that made our time together an absolute blast. Those 17 fantastic volunteers lead worship, small groups and games and served and cleaned up meals. A big thank you goes out to all of them. They truly made the event a huge success!
