Fall Youth Retreat December 4-6, 2020
Theme: On God’s Side
2020, am I right? Just saying the year now makes people roll their eyes, sigh heavily, or have their eyes twitch. Not only has it been the year of #COVID, but with the election this year, people seem to be more divided than ever. What does JESUS have to say about that? What “side” are we supposed to be on as a Christian? Not the way the world sees it – that’s continuing the division.
Romans 12:16 – Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.
This weekend we will talk about what it means to LOVE without limits and how to respect someone who doesn’t share the same thoughts as you.
Bring a friend, bring someone maybe you don’t get along with, too! You get to come to Ross Point and see real people, not a zoom call!
Speaker: Andrew and Kristen Sayers
Kristen and Andrew have been ministering together for 14 years as street chaplains to homeless and incarcerated youth, they are foster parents and family advocates and the parents of two wonderfully wild little boys. When they aren’t ministering, you will find them on an adventure with the boys on their bikes, flying kites, chasing Kristen’s goats, or on a hike to some environmental treasure with a guitar strapped to Andrew’s back.
Director: Ericka Sayers
Ericka has been involved with Ross Point since last millennia – first attending Junior Camp in 1996. Growing up as a pastor’s kid, she moved around a lot, yet Ross Point was always there, and always a home to return to. She grew up quiet and shy, yet was stretched to counsel many times, worked on staff a few years, and directed Senior High Camp for five summers. She has worked at the largest high school in Washington State for the past 8 years as an American Sign Language Interpreter, and sees that “the struggle is real” for students nowadays! Ericka has passions for Jesus, honesty, worship, and wrestling. She wants to help encourage you to relax, restart, and GO!
