The theme for the 1st Teen Retreat was “Stand Firm”. Approximately 40 teens from the Lumber River Holiness Methodist Conference participated in the weekend events. Teens from Macedonia and Shoeheel Church are seen hanging out for the movie, Shake Off the World Friday night during the LRCHMC Conference Teen Retreat held at Camp Grace this weekend. Union Chapel’s Youth Pastor Chris Miller brought the message earlier that evening on the same topic, stand firm! No one made a confession of faith, but hearts were touched and seeds to stand firm against temptations in this world were planted. Wonderful food and refreshments were provided by Camp Grace staff and various church members.
During the breakout sessions on Saturday morning, two guest speakers were invited one for the boys and one for the girls. The girls’ speaker was Ms. Lindsey Oxendine, Miss Lumbee and boys’ speaker was Coach Todd Rentz from Red Springs High.
