YoungLife Fall Weekend
Rockbridge Alum Springs was a huge hit!

It's not surprising that when you take 80 folks from one area to Rockbridge for a weekend, they have tons of fun and make new friendships that have the potential of being significant for years to come. 

Because we have gotten to where we are taking so many teens on our fall YL weekend, we practically completely fill one entire dorm.  Our kids are constantly bumping into one another either over late night surprise pizza or as they stand and sing together in all the YL clubs during the weekend.  

Although we love having fun together, it is tremendously heartwarming to hear teens talk about the effect that the weekend get away has on their hearts.  This fall one camper said "I feel like I got in touch with a part of myself that I let slide into neutral years ago.  I haven't thought much about my faith in a while.  I am so excited now!"   Another teen said he wasn't sure where he stood with his faith, but he had totally dismissed it up to the weekend.  

We are very thankful to those of you who helped us by making extra contributions designated to help defray the cost of the weekend for the kids.  The area always subsidizes the cost, which we love to do; as we get bigger and bigger, that cost is growing as well!  Your gifts were so well spent!!!

WyldLife Winter Weekend is coming!!!!      January 18-20

Its time for our WyldLife friends to have the best winter weekend ever!  That is going to happen for them this coming January.  We're off to Rockbridge for a Wild and Wooley Weekend with about 500 other WyldLifers from around our part of the state.  So help your teen clear the weekend, tell the parents of all their friends, and be a hero cause they are going to have a blast!

                                       The Role of a Young Life Leader

It has never been easy growing up, but one has to wonder if with each successive generation it doesn't get just a little bit tougher.  Many teens, today, are facing incredibly difficult circumstances - broken homes, peer pressure, media bombardment with glossy images of cultural heroes whos lives are awash with drugs, sex, and rehab.  In the midst of all this,  teens' fundamental quest remains the same as it has always been: they are desperately seeking significance for their own lives and acceptance from others.  Unfortunately significance can be elusive and acceptance often comes at a a very steep price. 

Since 1941 Young Life has provided teens with the opportunity to see and hear a different message.  Each year Young Life leaders spend enormous amounts of time just being with teens in their world...going to their games and practices, watching their performances, taking an interest in them.  The hope for Young Life has always been that we can win the right to share with teens the incredibly great story of God's love for us as evidenced through Jesus Christ.  

Young Life leaders become friends, mentors, sounding boards, cheerleaders...for a generation.
