From the 13th-15th of October, Jamberoo Youth will be heading down to Burrill Pines (5 mins south of Ulladulla) for the weekend. It will be a time of fun and games and friendship – a weekend to make memories together.
The main reason we’re going away together, though, is to spend time growing our relationship with Jesus.
Over the course of the weekend, we are going to read through the book of Colossians. Through talks, discussion groups, songs, questions and quiet times, we will be encountering the risen, living Jesus.
Our theme for the weekend, and indeed the theme of Colossians, is the Supremacy of Christ. We will discover how Jesus is the answer to the emptiness the world offers us, and how that brings us true freedom.
In our church service, we will often say together what we believe about Jesus from Colossians 1:15-20. This passage sets the tone and the themes which the rest of the book explores. What better way to spend a weekend than diving into this message!
Praise God we have stacks of youth coming – between youth and leaders, we will have about 30 of us down at Burrill Pines.
Please be praying for safety as we drive down and back, and do some fun activities as part of the weekend. Pray that it would be a great time of fellowship.
But most importantly, please pray that we would come back loving Jesus more as Colossians shows us his love for us.
Praise God that Jesus has made peace between us and God by his blood shed on the cross.
