It was a cold and wet weekend at Camp Tejas during the middle school retreat, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying a break from the business to retreat with God, and enjoy quality time slinging mud at each other in the giant mud pit. All together there were twenty-nine youth combined from FUMC, St John’s UMC and University UMC.
During the retreat, our theme was “Who Is Your Neighbor?” so we spent time thinking about who Christ calls us to be neighbors within our community, in our country and in the world. Little did we know that it would be a theme we would continue to cling to with the youth as we’ve endured hard news from around the world. That’s always our mission for youth retreats, to set time aside to be with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ and to show youth that our journey with Christ calls us to be together.
