Covenant Youth went paintballing last Sunday night. Check out the pictures!
John had the opportunity to speak to students at Whitewater High School's FCA. Pray for John as he continues to speak at different schools and events, that the gospel of Jesus would change lives.
Where have you heard a story about a Hero dying for the villains? Covenant students got to join up with Chestnut Mountain Presbyterian's youth ministry to think about that truth: that in the gospel Jesus, the True and Better Hero, saves us, the ones who have rebelled against Him!
Our theme was "Hero". To go along with the retreat theme, there was weekend-long team competition and each team was named after a superhero.
Iron Man and Iron Minion.
Each person wore a cape representing their team.
Super hero teams help each other fly...
... which is pretty tiring.
A huge thank you to all who prayed for the retreat! It was an awesome time to grow spiritually and closer together as a group.
