I bet you were tired of scrolling through Instagram looking at the countless pictures from the Rockbridge Young Life retreat. You probably thought that all we did there was take pictures. However, that is far from true. We discovered a connection with Jesus, sang exciting songs, and watched the “jorts wearing, mustache bearing, badge carrying Rockbridge mall cops” put on a spectacular show. It was an eye-opening experience in a beautiful place in the mountains.
I personally made a stronger connection with God, and it guided me to want to be more involved with my church. I also made new friendships. If those people didn't go to Rockbridge I would probably never would have talked to them before. We had an amazing leader lead the Bible lesson, and he made sure we all understood what he was saying by using analogies and visually showing us real life examples.
Sadly, it all came to an end, but Young Life doesn't end there. If you want to become a part of Young Life, club meetings are every Monday. You can talk to me or any other Young Life member for more information.
