Awanita Recap

JI Youth's Fall Retreat at Awanita in Marietta, SC, was an enriching experience set against the tranquil mountain scenery. Three impactful sermons and heartfelt worship sessions fostered a deep sense of spiritual connection among participants. The retreat seamlessly combined moments of reflection with outdoor adventures like zip-lining, horseback riding, and rock climbing, all against the backdrop of the majestic mountains.

Evenings around the communal bonfire provided a warm space for genuine connections and lasting friendships to form. This blend of spiritual growth, outdoor exploration, and community bonding created a memorable weekend for JI Youth. The shared moments in the mountains of Marietta will undoubtedly be cherished, marking this retreat as a significant and meaningful chapter in the spiritual journey of all who took part.
