Our DBA Winter Surge Youth Retreat was a joyous weekend of prayer, preaching and missions. Winter Surge provides our youth an opportunity to worship and serve together between the fall and spring school semesters. Winter Surge is also great opportunity for our Surge summer youth campers to reconnect.
This year at Winter Surge, Maddison Herrin preached the Word on Friday evening, Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon. Our adult small group break-out leaders facilitated our small group discussions and on Saturday afternoon, we engaged in local missions together, one team at the Dream Center and the other at Iglesia Bautista De Cedar Crossing. Around 60 of us went out on mission Saturday.
First Baptist Mount Vernon graciously served our students by opening their facility to host Winter Surge. Laura Hay (FBC Mount Vernon) continues to impact our faith community by organizing Surge so that our youth can experience the life of Christ.
I’m thankful for our Surge team. They are committed to the spiritual growth and health of our youth. Our DBA Winter Surge retreats and Surge summer camps will have long-term spiritual impact as our local youth grow up worshipping and serving together.
