Jr. High Fall Retreat

What are these pictures from? Well, junior high youth groups from the Chicagoland area and the UP came to Covenant Point for the long Columbus Day weekend and had a great time exploring, playing games, worshipping and growing together as fellow Christians.  Covenant churches in attendance included Hinsdale, Batavia, Park Ridge, Winnetka, and Grace Covenant.

The messages of the weekend were given by youth leaders from the attending Covenant Churches, Lauren Malecki, Christy Bouris, Lars Stromberg, as well as our camp director Erik Strom.  These talented speakers shared about relationships Jesus had with the Father, outsiders, his disciples, and children.  Music was led by our friends and youth leaders Colby Mecher, Jamie Sladkey, Meghan Bruggeman, and Lars Stromberg.  The kids also enjoyed a hike out to beautiful Ottowa Lake, some time doing high ropes on our Island, and games including a guest appearance by the chicken!
