Dear members and friends of New Beginnings church:
I am writing this to you while reflecting on our very first youth fellowship retreat weekend. As a church, we
are sincerely blessed with a great group of kids and caring adult leadership for our youth fellowship. The leadership put together and the kids thoroughly enjoyed a fantastic weekend at the Inn of Hope in Steinsville,
I don't want to play the role of spoiler for any coming reports from our youth regarding this past weekend. However, I'm pleased to report that the retreat was a huge success. I offer as evidence of this fact an overheard conversation amongst some of our kids, stating that they wished we could do it again next weekend.
Saturday evening really touched all of our hearts as our large group gathered into a sizeable living
room and watched a movie together. Folks, the atmosphere in that room was beyond church. We enjoyed a pleasant evening as an oversized, loving, Christian family. All praise be to God!
I'm truly humbled by God's guiding hand in bringing such a "unique" group together. We, as a church,
can truly offer thanksgivings to God for the blessings and opportunities He has provided our church in our ability to provide the Youth Fellowship program we have to the future of our church.
Thanks again to all the adults and kids for making this a special and memorable weekend.
In Christian love,
Special thanks to go out to our adult leadership for all of their loving efforts that provided our youth with an
inspiring weekend of faith, fellowship and fun. The kids were very well behaved and the adults were amazed how the kids enjoyed everything together as a group, without dividing up into cliques.
