Winter Thaw-A (WT-A)

January 18-20, 2019

Can't bring your group this weekend? Check Out Winter Thaw-B

Grace is difficult to understand fully, for the believer and non-believer, but people are given God’s grace over and over again. Ajay has experienced that grace in his life and looks forward to sharing about that grace he received. John 1:16 is the basis for the weekend theme of “Gracefull.”

The concept of God’s grace can be especially difficult for teenagers to grasp because of all the negative influence upon their lives. Recognizing God’s abundant graciousness in their lives will enable teens to share that grace with others.

Winter Thaw 2019 will focus on God’s grace, both accepting the grace God extends to us and how to demonstrate that grace to others. focus on transforming teens to accept God's grace extended to them, as well as how to demonstrate grace to others. Join other teens for a winter weekend youth retreat in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Come to experience camp fun, worship, friends, Bible study, and Christ's transforming love and grace.

Warning: teens will return different from when they arrive!
