Ascend Summer Teen Experience 2013
Of course there will be plenty of time for hanging out with friends, tubing at the lake, or “ascending” the 40 ft. climbing wall! This will be the highlight of your summer.
“Ascend” to a new level in your personal relationship with God!

In the beginning of the week I boldly made it clear to Todd that I did not believe in God, and by the end of the final night when the opportunity was suggested for us to accept the Lord's presence in our lives, I took an even bolder step and allowed God to work in me like never before. I had wanted the joy that was all around me, which can sometimes make it hard to go back home. Nevertheless, I told Todd Carver that I was done with my old self and I was leaving there a new person. Since then I have remained devoted to Christ and the scriptures and was baptized at the Christmas Eve service at my Church.
