Getaway 2013: Day 3

This morning started off with students finishing their second quiet time. Today they read on the subject of taking risks for the cause of Christ, which, again, pulled from John Piper’s book, Risk Is Right. A quote from John Piper sums up well the main point of today’s study, “it is the will of the Lord that we take risks for the cause of God.”

After talking about what it means to follow Christ on Tuesday, small group today discussed what our reaction should be as Christ followers when faced with opposition concerning our faith, mainly focusing on various passages in the book of Nehemiah.

In recreation, things got a little wet with the theme for the day being water games. The team leaders were able to get a little payback for yesterday’s team-building maze game; as one of the games included the leaders throwing water balloons at their team while they tried to catch each balloon in various, odd containers.

The Summer Ministry Team did an amazing job with Late Night last night, having games which used a variety of items (from ping pong balls, to Ice Cream Sundays!). We eagerly look forward to what they will have for us tonight!

Thank you for your prayers this Getaway. We ask for your continued prayer as Pastor Jeff prepares to teach on “Responding with Courage” tonight.
