SC Synod Winter Retreat at Camp Kinard for 9th & 10th graders
“I can’t do it!” “This is just too big for me right now.” These are things we all say, but we don’t always know how to find purpose in our struggles or meaning in our suffering. As teenagers especially, we’re wrestling with how to reconcile faith in God’s loving purpose with the realities of the world’s suffering and our own difficult experiences. We hear people say things like, “God’s got this” — but HOW does God have this? At this retreat we will wrestle with these questions of faith, and grow in our understanding of the ways God is with us and how to ask these hard questions with faith and confidence.
We will leave Friday after school, drive to Camp Kinard having packed dinner along the way. We will leave after worship around 11:30 am and head home, eating out along the way. Participants will pay $45 towards the $95 registration fee (All Saints will cover the remaining balance), plus youth will want an additional $15 for Sunday meal and ice cream en route.
