Ten members of Grace Church are heading out into the wilderness on Friday, July 24th. For the confirmation youth, this will be a time to reflect on God’s grace and calling in preparation for confirming their faith this fall. Youth participating are Coleman Behling, Luke Olson, Kole Svacina, and Eli Wurl.
For the adults on this trip it will also be a life-impacting experience of God’s grace and call as we put aside the clutter that often fills our minds, and soak in the wonders of mountain scenery, campfire conversations, star studded nights, and deep wilderness peace. Adults are Brian Olson, Pete and Lynn Wurl, Keri Svacina, Ron Wilson, and Pastor Mark.
