GRACE RETREAT 2011
Grace Youth Retreat began 11 years ago as a joint youth retreat among a few churches with the help of the Atlantic Korean American Presbytery (AKAP), a division of the Mid-Atlantic Synod of Presbyterian Church USA. In the first year, Grace Retreat 2001 was held at a retreat center near King’s Dominion with 130 participants from 9 churches. Last year in 2010, our ninth year of Grace Retreat, God brought over 600 participants from 4 states (MD, VA, NC, and NJ) and 44 churches, including churches from across denominations.
As we enter a new decade, we mark the 11th year of Grace Retreat. God is raising up a new generation of people who will follow the Lamb wherever He goes. Our God declares to us, “Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert” (Is 43:18-19). Our God is God and Lord over all the nations, and He alone is the hope for the nations.
Grace 2011 will be a time filled with the wonder of God’s power, grace, and love. We will have awesome Spirit-filled worship, inspiring speakers, powerful encounters with the living God, life-transforming small groups, and of course, a great time of fellowship. We hope you and your church will come and experience the transforming power of God’s presence at this year’s Grace Retreat.
There will also be young adults track for those who are beyond high school. This track is geared to those who are under 30. Registration process will be same as the youth who will be participating.
