Christ Church 4th and 5th graders enjoyed a special time together during the GAP45 overnight retreat at Mt. Lebanon last weekend.The opening lesson and worship session at the hilltop campfire site was incredibly beautiful and moving. The next day, students started the day with morning prayer, followed by an adventure that challenged many of them: the zipline!
What a positive group of young people! It was powerful to see them cheer each other on as they suited up and climbed that imposing tower, with its winding stairs and open platform at the top. Some decided it was too much and walked back down, proud to have tried and even come so far. Others paused before deciding to let go and enjoy the ride. Everyone cheered for their friends, telling them they could do it.
One sweet boy became afraid and walked back down the stairs after getting to the top. Yet he asked if he could try it again. Not only did he make it to the top, but this time he leaned forward and zipped his way down the line! It was amazing to watch the transformation.
The GAP45 retreat is for many kids their first overnight retreat on location with their peers. We celebrate the leaps of faith these young people are making as they grow in the wisdom and stature of the Lord. Thank you for giving them your own support, encouragement, and prayer.
