Another year brings another MPCS high school retreat. But as with most things lately, this retreat was unlike any we’ve ever had. Distancing and masks meant that only our seniors were able to travel this year to Sharptop Cove in the North Georgia mountains. The first night opened with amazing worship and message and ended with a bonfire and karaoke. Day two came, and the retreat was in full swing. From the pool, to the gym, to the fields, the days were filled with endless activities for the students to enjoy. Day two ended with a retreat first: an outdoor movie on the lawn!
Both days culminated in an amazing night of worship and powerful messages brought by our speaker, Pastor Jody Shelton. For each message, Jody brought practical Truth from God’s Word that spoke directly into the lives of our seniors. Many of the seniors made life-changing commitments for Christ as a result of this time together. All that attended agreed, although we missed being together as a high school, this year’s “seniors only” retreat will be remembered as amazing!
