What do you get when you combine 143 youth, 50 staff, and over 4' of snow?
You get UNITE 2015
December 27th-31st all these things compounded on Tall Timber Ranch for fun days and worshipful nights around the theme RESPOND. Participants explored the ways to listen for, engage in, and act upon God's call for their lives.
This remarkably diverse retreat included a mosaic of people, from our own Trinity teens, to students involved in White Center's Union Gospel Mission, to youth from the tiny town of Plain, Washington. This allowed for a remarkable new dimension in small group discussions. Particularly poignant, each student shared details of where they were from, offering unique insights into the varied lives of the youth from these nine churches in our region.
When not engage in active ministry, we were just active! Snow fort competitions, cross-country skiing, Foosball, and a group games saw the whole camp running, dancing, and gesticulating in all sorts of ways.
Between late nights, beautiful worship, delicious camp food, powerful messages, and hilarious skits, UNITE 2015 will go down in the books as another excellent retreat.
