BCA Secondary Retreat 2012

In mid-September the secondary students of BCA had a retreat in Bran with guest speakers Debbie and Ken Cunningham.  Debbie shared from the 7 "I am" Statements in John encouraging us in our relationships with Jesus and to grow more deeply in Him,

Here are some things the students learned on the retreat:

--Nothing will happen in my life that God doesn't already know about
--I need to stop thinking about what I want and who I want to be, and be who God wants me to be
--I learned the importance of a devotional life and different ways to give glory to God
--That Jesus is the Bred of Life and just like we need bread to eat every day, we need God just as much
--I cannot do anything on my own
--Everything that happens will work out for a good purpose
--I saw I was longing for man's approval and not God's approval
--I learned that Jesus is in my life, and He is the only source of salvation
--The same power that rose Jesus from the dead, lives in me
--I need to make a difference in others' lives because of how God has blessed me though a knowledge of Himself.
