Not all of us enjoy running.  To be honest, if I’m running, there is probably something chasing me!  But every human being, regardless of our physical fitness, is part of a race called life.  As Christians, we fix our eyes on Jesus as we run the race.  Jesus helps us understand who we are, set our priorities, and shows us how to approach the challenges that are a part of life.

If you’ve ever prepared for a competition, you know that it takes practice, dedication, and a teacher/coach/mentor to show you how to perfect your craft.  Whether you’re running, singing, or earning a badge as a scout - preparation is the key to success and training takes time!  As Christians, we take time to spend with Jesus, our life coach, we pray, read scripture, and join together with other Christians, so we can run the race of life well.  

Join us November 16-18 at Cedar Lakes to gather with other young people who are eager to Run the Race

Shea James

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.  And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.  For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2

Youth arrive Friday evening at Cedar Lakes Conference center where they are assigned housing in small cabins for the weekend. These cabin groups are not only a place where youth sleep. Cabins also serve as small groups and are a place of spiritual formation where youth read scripture, pray, and learn together.

On Saturday the day starts bright and early with breakfast. Youth choose a morning workshop to attend and another workshop in afternoon after lunch. Workshops are generally based around the theme for the weekend.

Saturday evening is filled with activities including a dance, games, movies, and a bonfire.

The weekend concludes with a Sunday morning worship experience where youth celebrate communion and all they experienced during the weekend.
