HIGH SCHOOL RETREAT RENEWS STUDENTS SPIRITUALLY
Last week, 360 SCS students, parents, and faculty members made their way to Allaso Ranch in Hawkins to take part in our annual SCS High School Retreat. This year's retreat consisted of an intense and competitive class competition, spirit-filled worship led by SCS Worship (SCS's High School Praise Band), and powerful teaching.
Our retreat speakers -- Bible Department Head Seth Higgins, Director of Diversity Jeromy Flowers, and Associate Head of School Dr. Joey Richards -- unpacked Matthew 14, the story of Peter stepping out onto the water in the middle of a storm. Students walked through the fact that God's power is found in even the roughest waters. When the retreat came to an end, around 8 -10 students walked away with a new faith in Jesus and a salvation that will last them an eternity.
Together, with the angels in Heaven, we celebrate as God's Kingdom grew that much more with the hearts and souls of these SCS students. Retreat was truly a success and it left our kids wanting more! Thank you to all the parents and faculty members who used their God-given gifts, talents, and wisdom in serving at this year's retreat and loving on these kids.
