Students Return

Last weekend our students went on their annual retreat to Camp Oak Hill. Pastor David Porter was their guest speaker. He is a Campus Pastor at a multi-site church in Statesville, NC, and has been involved in ministry at The Cove for 10 years. He and his wife, Andrea, have been married for 21 years and have 2 children. Pastor David spoke on the topics:

  • "God is Bigger than the Unknown" (John 11:1-3)
  • "God is Bigger than Temptation" (1 Peter 1)
  • "God is Bigger than Your Secrets" (Matthew 28)
Students participated in a number of activities including a lip synch battle, mega relays, and team challenges. They also enjoyed small group break out sessions and opportunities to spend time with the Lord. Pray, and ask God to give you an opportunity to show your children how God really is bigger than the unknown-- whether it be an example from your Bible study or in your own life.

No temptation has come upon you except what is common to humanity. But God is faithful; he will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation he will also provide a way out so that you may be able to bear it. --1 Corinthians 10:13
