Spring Youth Retreat April 7-9, 2017
“What Would You Die For? (What would you live for?)”
Christ made the ultimate sacrifice. He gave his all on the cross and rose from the grave. We will be taking this weekend to discuss the weight of the sacrifice that Christ made. While his death and resurrection is the real miracle and the reason we are all saved, we often lose sight of why and how Jesus was killed. Let’s discover a new perspective about the events leading up to the resurrection and how the act of Jesus going to the cross saved the world in a way nothing else could.
Directors & Speakers
Tony Pellitteri: I have been involved with Ross Point as a camper, counselor, or director since 2002. Through the programs at the camp, I found my faith and made it my own. Since seeing the leadership as a kid, I’ve always wanted to be that example to the next generation. While it’s far from the only way to show Christ to kids, leading at camp is easily my favorite.
Nichole Skellie: Ross Point has been a large part of my life for about 6 years now, it is the place where my faith flourished. I have counseled many times at camp, and now being new to directing I have quickly fallen in love with it. I am very excited about spring retreat and all the things we have planned for the weekend.
