Responding to Grace



Some Retreat highlights!

--Tom got a 'lucky' pancake with a whole packet of Big League Chew inside- blech
--Monica lost the hot water contest with my small group...ha ha...
--Jacob won MVP for Friday's icebreaker- he knew *everybody*!
--Laura won Most Likely To Sleep in the Wrong Girl's Cabin
--Mike won the Big League Chew...and showered the rest of us with generosity
--Ben and Theresa were champions of the water drinking game...or not.. ;)
--Bernard, Kathleen, and Stefani perfected the model's catwalk...
--And Irenaus and Bethany stopped by!

We meditated on the piece of scripture in which Jesus calls Peter to 'Put Out Into the Deep;' especially what this means in terms of daily discipleship.


We will be chatting more about the opportunity to 'Put Out Into the Deep' by responding to God's love through servant leadership in the Village. Visit http://www.findthevillage.com/ to download the 'Responding to Grace' Application to be a Teen Leader. It is exciting to see the many ways God has equipped us for these important ministries. :)


Looking forward to seeing you all this Sunday at Village!
