Avalanche 2011

In a few short hours, Gravity’s High School Winter Retreat, Avalanche 2011 will begin! I love retreats, because it gives students an opportunity to connect, grow and experience biblical community with their peers in a way that God had intended. We are very excited, and are looking forward to this being a weekend that students will remember as one of those faith-building moments in their life.

Our theme this weekend is “Understanding The Holy Spirit”. This comes from the passage in Romans 15:13, which says: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Chris Ziegler, our speaker for the retreat will unpack this passage for us, and help us better understand the power of the Holy Spirit in our life.

Please be praying for the retreat throughout the weekend, specifically that:

* Students will disconnect from the distraction of a busy life and connect with God through his word, in worship and in His creation.
* Students will laugh, have fun and make memories together.
* Students will engage in the teaching times, and really take Chris’ messages to heart.
* New friendships will form, and existing friendships will get closer.
* Students will take a step closer towards Christ this weekend.
