Berean Holds Annual Retreat In Lake Placid

For the past 19 years, students in grades 9 through 12 at Berean Christian School pack up their sleeping bags, casual clothes and Bibles and head off to a three-day spiritual retreat.

This year’s retreat was held at Lake Placid Camp and Conference Center. The annual retreat is planned for the third or fourth week of school to give students an opportunity to get to know each other, faculty and administrators in a casual atmosphere.

Students spent three days zip-lining, playing sports, swimming and worshipping together. The Student Council Organization, under the leadership of Sarah Stegall, planned many team-building activities in which students developed imagination and creativity all under the guise of fun and laughs.

The speaker was secondary science teacher Nate Brock, who challenged students to consider the concept of thirst as it applies to their walk with God. Students thoughtfully examined the areas in life in which they thirst, as well as realizing that God desires to have a relationship with them.
