After 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.
Throughout the weekend, students encountered God and renewed their dedication to Him.
