The past 3 years Drew has attended the Winter Retreat for the Youth at Shocco Springs. They usually have about 500 youth and about 100 adults go and he just loves it! Since he and his friends have started attending they always come back telling stories of God, spreading the word, and the football game…a boys vs girls football game; one for each grade level. It’s an amazing time and he always comes back on fire for God. Just love to see that in him.
Well, during the same time that the youth retreat is going on, at the same camp, there’s also a Church-wide retreat. This year we decided to go. We had a wonderful time. With a church of 4,000+ there’s always new faces to see and meet. That we did. Our worship leaders were:
Kory Knott of Argyle UMC so inspirational
We enjoyed Kory’s 5 different sermons about Jesus’s journeys. Each sermon was prefaced with a story about Kory, from the “the Kory Files” by one of our current church staff members, who used to work with him when he was at Highland Park UMC. That happens to be the church where my Dad got remarried. Here’s Lisa telling a story about Kory
Here’s some highlights from the weekend.
After getting settled in our room, we met for the weekend kickoff. We enjoyed our first sermon led by Kory. The kids were in there with us for the singing and then they got taken away to do kid stuff.
