July 24th - July 29th, 2017
Hey. Ethan here…Student Pastor at Radiant Life Fellowship! I want to invite you, to join The Roots (the students of Radiant Life Fellowship) as we return from July 24 to July 29. This annual summer trip always bonds our group together, and is always a lot of fun. Fort Caswell is also a special place for students, as they explore their faith in Christ. This will be the fifth time we will be going to Ft. Caswell, and each year has been even more amazing than the previous!
Ft. Caswell is located on Oak Island near Wilmington, North Carolina. Our daily schedule is consistent throughout the week. Each day, we will have a morning worship service, small group time, free time, and evening worship service. We will also have time each night, to recap the day as a group.
As a teenager, I went to Caswell from 7th to 12th grade! Caswell gave me a place where I could learn about who Jesus was with peers. Caswell provided an outlet for me to worship freely. I can honestly say that Caswell helped shape my relationship with Jesus! My hope is that Caswell will do the same thing for your student!
Let me leave you with this…I encourage you to seriously consider Caswell! I guarantee it will change your student's life, and strengthen their relationship with Jesus!
