Our Youth Group participated/helped lead the Presbytery of Western Kentucky’s Fall Retreat at Camp Loucon in Leitchfield, KY. The creative leadership for the conference consists of ministers and youth ministers in our Presbytery.
This year’s retreat creators were Anthony Marts, David Muffett, Katie Todd, Mason Todd, Evan Walker, Rob Wilson and me (Becky Durham)!
This year’s retreat theme was “Status Update” and we had three worship/keynote sessions:
1. OMG (Who Do You Say God Is?) Matthew 16:13-17
2. IDK (Who Do You Say You Are?) 1 Peter 2:4-6
3. BFF (Who Does God Say You Are?) 1 Peter 2:9-10
On Saturday night, we have an interactive worship and prayer experience involving stations. Here are the first four stations we created for this event:
Station 1: #np
1. If there were a song written about your life and about how God sees you, which song is it? If there were a song written about God and how you think about God, which song is it?
2. Add a song to our Loucon playlist that represents how God sees you or how you see God.
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!” Psalm 100:1
The link to the playlist created is here: http://open.spotify.com/user/121342171/playlist/1pvUsAzE0PWfJCh1RmYznq
Station 2: OMG in 140
1. What would you like to say to God?
2. Tweet a prayer from our Fall Retreat prayer account!
Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
Station 3: Draw Something
1. Consider your relationships (family, friends, God, etc.)
2. Draw something that represents one or more of these relationships.
Station 4: PostSecret Confessional
1. We all fall short in living as God calls us to live. It is an unnecessary burden to carry around guilt of our wrong-doing.
2. Write your confessions on a postcard and leave it at the station.
Therefore confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective. James 5:16
