Snowbound 2020: A Recap

February 3, 2020 | Written by Mark Windle

What do you get when you combine 500 middle school students and caring, Christ following, adults, with snow capped mountain backdrops, with ridiculous games, with dynamic worship and relevant preaching? A VERY necessary time away together!

That’s precisely what SnowBound 2020 was. We escaped over the recent MLK holiday weekend for some serious retreat; to a Camp that is run through a collaborative effort of 20+ churches from across the state. And it serves as one our biggest highlights in our annual student calendar.

As our students got away from school, friends, families and cell phones, God met them RIGHT where they were. They definitely spent the weekend being seen. What a gift!

And finally, a quick video recap of the mayhem.

Last weekend was our middle school winter retreat, Snowbound.

Sports Camp 2019

We’ve just wrapped up another year of Sports Camp and it was packed full of sports, fun, singing, dancing, and most of all, Jesus. Spicy Mike and Sweet T even made a surprise comeback! It was a fantastic week. Here’s a quick photo recap.

Ten hours of crazytown? I’m in.

Ten hours, eight leaders, four vans, forty 5th and 6th graders. Even with the oscillating attitudes of the puberty stricken children and the smell of pungent youngsters, it had been SO worth it. Because these 11-12 year olds are going through some of the most difficult years of their life. And I want to be a part of that.
