Spring Youth Retreat April 3-5, 2020
In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8
“Stress: a mental, physical, or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances.” (loose translation from Oxford Dictionary) It seems life is packing on more stress, and as much as I know I’d love to stay home in my snuggie, that’s not always an option. Even Jesus experienced stressful situations, and since HE IS GOD, I think HE knows how to help. Mark 6:31 (NIV) says “Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”
This weekend, I really want us ALL to not only recognize stress for what it is and does to us, but how we can help each other and ourselves in a Godly way. Bring a friend (or 4) so we all can laugh, play, learn, and grow together. —Excited to see you! Ericka
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!
