Last weekend, we had our first ever Freshman Retreat! After dinner and games at Sanchez, we packed up and left to the retreat site where we kicked off the weekend by watching a G-live skit called “What Are You Waiting For?”. That showed us the different reasons why people might be waiting until they decide to follow God. Afterwards, we had a fun time eating some quick but yummy snacks we put together using sausages and bread rolls!

Our Easter weekend began with the Good Friday service. We reflected over scenes from The Passion of the Christ and 1 Corinthians 1:18-31 thinking about how God’s plan of salvation conflicted with different worldviews.

This past Friday, we met together for our large group Bible study. Pastor Manny concluded the Genesis message series in which we had been following the life of Abraham throughout the book of Genesis. We were challenged once again by Abraham’s response to God, even when he was asked to give up the one thing he had waited his whole life for, his son, Isaac. Through his life, we were able to get a beautiful picture of what a relationship with God could look like.
Of course, the Bible study was only the first part of the night. Afterwards, we all headed over to the Austin Sports Center for the final gym night of the spring semester! However, this time, the seniors were the ones in charge, while an all-staff team was formed to join the freshmen, sophomores, and juniors in battling for victory. It was an epic night with various games based on popular ones – but all with a Lord of the Rings twist. The overarching question throughout the tournament was which class would be the one to rule them all?
