Each night we worshiped through the singing of songs, Bible study, personal reflection, and prayer. Several youth volunteered to lead worship. Most precious was our closing Friday night service in the candlelit historic sanctuary. Five recently graduated high school seniors were celebrated and they closed out their youth group days with meaningful words of wisdom to the youth following in their footsteps.
Thankfully, we all returned safely home Saturday afternoon. Most important, the youth grew their faith in Jesus Christ through bonding closer together in their relationships, by being equipped for discipleship, and by serving the Cedar Rapids community.
God’s grace was multiplied many times over.
