Forge Retreat 2017
Thirty Jr. High and High School students and leaders spent an October weekend on Catalina Island for the 2017 Forge Retreat! This year’s retreat was nautically-themed “Hold Fast”, taken from Hebrews 6:19a, which reads, “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm, and secure” (NIV). We studied and discussed how God provides hope in difficult situations and in pursuing a life clinging to Jesus. There was also a great deal of campfire jokes, waterfront activities, food eaten, and late night chats!
