The youth took a ski trip Fri., 1/27/23 to Sun.1/29/23. They spent two nights at Glade Springs Resort with group-led devotions and worship.
From Jami: Youth and families had an excellent time skiing at the end of January. Everyone came back safe and uninjured. For 39 people those are big praises! We had a great time in the snow and recognizing our strengths and weaknesses while also recognizing that God is there in the midst of all of it.
