Middle School Retreat

2019 IDE Middle School Retreat

“Thou Shalt!”

April 26-27, 2019

Camp Io-Dis-E-Ca

The Law of God is good and wise, but it can sure seem like a massive burden in our lives. Wouldn’t life be a lot better if we just set aside all those rules? Wouldn’t we seem a lot nicer to the world around us? And since we are saved by grace, is there really any need for the Law in the life of a Christian? As sinners, we hate the Law because it tells us that we are imprefect and because it sets limits that we want to cross. But as God’s children, we see that our heavenly Father’s law is a blessing, and we will find out that we cannot only learn to apprecaite the Law, but actually love it. Our Presenter is Pastor Daniel Redhage from Trinity Lutheran Church in Lowden, IA.
