The 2022 Youth Retreat was held at Camp Mikell in the beautiful mountains of Toccoa, Georgia, December 16-18. With the theme “God Revealed,” 220 attendees heard presentations on how God reveals Himself through His Son, Jesus, through His names, through nature and the Bible, and through the Holy Spirit in our hearts. Presenters were Bryan Lozada, Jo Allison Krome, and Kimanio Fray.
Sabbath morning began with an activity led by Sharon Modeste. This year’s Y2Y (youth to youth) time was based on God’s attributes. Five churches (Lexington, Kentucky; Chattanooga, Tennessee; Baxley and Stone Mountain, Georgia; and South Miami) presented God’s attributes: good, majestic, powerful, faithful, and unchangeable.
On Sabbath afternoon, youth went on a challenging hike to a waterfall and did other activities. After the Sabbath evening presentation, we ended with a bonfire followed by hot chocolate, Mexican bread, fellowship, and games.
