DNow2014 Saturday - 25After the dust settled and trash got taken out, I got a chance to sit back and think through the highlights from this year’s DiscipleNow retreat. Here are a few:

  • Our speaker, Aaron Thompson: The theme for the weekend was “the greatest” commandment (Matthew 22:37-39). Aaron showed us how to love God and love others and how those ideas work together. (See video below.)
  • The Small Groups: Students discussed what they were learning in each session.  They shared how they felt God leading them forward after the retreat.
  • Hanging Out and Serving: We set up a bouncy-house and Mario Kart and made free hot drinks on Saturday morning.  Everyone loved it! After lunch, we went out and served our community. Half of the group fixed a patio, mulched berms and worked on the new garage on the church campus. The other half went to Alden Valley Assisted Living and played games with the residents.
