Sunday Volunteers CSBC Choir

This summer we will be going to a Lake House on Lake Sinclair for a 4 day and 3 night retreat with the high schoolers (for those who have completed 9th-12th grades). The theme for this week will be Christ is Better. This theme is something that I have been striving to live for in my personal life for the past several years and one that I pray we as a student ministry live out loud in all that we do. For Christ is better than any momentary joy that this world has to offer – for as the Apostle Paul says to the Philippians, “To live is Christ and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21) and the writer of Hebrews’ main point to the church in that letter is to see that Christ is greater than all things.

My heart’s desire for the students at Cedar Street is that they would not simply have head knowledge of who Christ is but they would be transformed to be more like Christ each and every day. That the beat of their lives would be that they would seek to elevate Christ in all that they do. And during this retreat my prayer is that they leave knowing Christ is better. Each day we will unpack this statement through a morning devotion and an evening time of worship. And during the day we will enjoy the amenities of being on the lake, enjoy down time and explore the area.

 

Cost: $40 (which will cover food for breakfast, lunch, dinner and other expenses)

What to Bring: clothes for outdoor activities, swim wear (one piece for the ladies), comfortable walking shoes, toiletries, sun screen/bug repellant towels, sleeping bag/bed sheets, Bible/notebook/pen

RSVP: Please let Dave Chambers or contact the church office by July 19 if you plan to go.

We will depart the church at 1pm on July 23 and we will return by 3pm on July 26.
