Youth Ski Trip

Ski Trip

Youth members enjoyed a weekend of adventure, community, and growth together. We were thankful for sunny weather and enjoyed the slushy slopes in Galena, Illinois, with a beautiful view of the Mississippi River below the ski hills. We also reflected together on ways in which God has carried us and our spiritual ancestors through "mountaintop" experiences in our lives. Click the image for a larger view.
