WINTER RETREAT / FEBRUARY 2-4 / $160 (RESERVE YOUR SPOT FOR $20)
There is no better way for us to advance into 2018, than to retreat together into the mountains to refocus on what is most important, and to receive what we need from Jesus. We are very excited to announce this year's retreat in Big Bear, CA at the Salvation Army Pine Summit Retreat Center. This is a beautiful facility with plenty of activities to fill your free time, surpassingly good retreat food, cozy lodging, and a grand chapel to host our sessions. But, what is more exciting than the scenery, facility, or attractions is what we believe and have seen God do year in and year at at these retreats, and this year will be no exception.
This is a twice in a year opportunity to be enveloped into the love God has been building in this community of young people. There are countless friendships between students, and mentoring relationships formed and developed at our retreats. Whether somebody is new in this ministry, or have been around for a while, these retreats are designed to boost each student's connection to others & most importantly Jesus.
There is nothing like worshipping in the presence of the Lord with a hundred of your friends in the mountains. Year after year, we are awestruck at the authentic and raw works of God we experience together. There are lights on display, and songs we know well, but what outshines all of this is what the Holy Spirit does in our hearts. We've had some amazingly fun retreats these past few years, but every time it's the worship we go raving on about.
These are the times where we see so many lives changed, hearts healed, guilt washed away, and souls saved. Whether we know it or not, God seems to always deliver exactly what we need with pinpoint accuracy. Jesus said, "The truth shall set you free" and we have seen this truth performed before our very eyes time and time again. This year Pastor Josh Terada along with Pastor Darrell Chambers will be sharing from the Word of God. In the mornings we will study in on why we believe in what we believe about Jesus by finding answers hard questions like "How do we know the Bible is from God?", "Why is Jesus the only way to heaven?", and "why do bad things happen to good people". In the evenings, we will respond to what God says with our hearts, as we focus on the promises and call of God to experience and fulfill all that God has for us.
Some of the greatest and most memorable stories are lived and made at our annual retreats. There will be a lot to do at this retreat center with a BB Gun range, Archery Range, Zipline, Bonfires, our own cafe, and just spending three days together tends to make special memories inevitable.
The full ticket cost is $160 which covers lodging, activities (besides paintball & zip line), transportation, and 5 meals. To reserve your spot, you can pay a deposit of $20 and pay the remaining balance by the day of the retreat. If you would like to apply for financial aid, you can contact Darrell.Chambers@cc-ea.org, and we will do our best to help!
