Spring Youth Retreat March 3-5, 2023
This retreat is for students in grades 6 – 12. The cost of this fun filled, exciting weekend is only $85.00. Registration begins at 7:00 pm on Friday night (no early birds, please). The retreat ends at 2:00 pm on Sunday.
The theme is ‘Practicing Peace”. Philippians 4:8-9 says “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.”
In a world of chaos and uncertainty, God wants us to have peace. God wants us to live in his peace in spite of what is going on in our lives and our world. We will be talking about the Spiritual Tools for dealing with stress and anxiety.
Grace Hohag and Hua Ming Newman are directing this retreat and Martin Masten will be the speaker. Martin graduated from Pacific Life Bible College in 1984. Prior to entering pastoral ministry, he was a mailman for 30 years. He served as a youth pastor , lead pastor, lay pastor and children’s church pastor. He and his wife Janice have 3 sons and 8 grandchildren.
