Dear District pastors and laity

April 5-6 at Camp Overlook, the Spring District Youth Retreat we be host to  about 65 youth and adult leaders.  Please let me first say, this is a  blessing, and the most we have had in several years at a district youth  retreat.

there are some who will be attending who have grown up in church, however  there are some who will be hearing about God’s “Relentless Pursuit” of them for  the first time.

The District Youth Planning Team has asked that Every Church on the district  just take some time this weekend during worship to pray for the District Youth  Retreat.  We need to be undergirded in prayer for the work that is taking  place this weekend.


During the course of the weekend we will worship, pray, learn, play, and  fellowship together, and on Sunday we will be serving together to pack 10,000  meals for Stop Hunger Now.

Thank you for your prayerful support of our District Youth.

Dear Harrisonburg District Church Youth leaders,


Dear Harrisonburg District Youth Leaders,

We have heard from many of you and we are excited about the numbers we have heard of planning on attending. We are confident that this will be an amazing retreat.  However we do need all groups to register the youth either as a group/ or by individuals via the Camp Web Site:


The absolute registration deadline is Sunday.  Camp Overlook staff need to know the numbers to plan for on Monday Morning.

please, please, please do not get left out of this retreat by not registering by Sunday Evening.

in addition every youth who is attending will need to have a signed copy of the parental release and medical liability forms.

in addition – if youth groups who are attending the retreat would like to contribute donations towards Stop Hunger now, we are still in need of some funds.  To meet our goal to raise an additional $1000.00 for Stop Hunger Now, youth groups and churches may donate up to $100.00.  if we share the remaining cost of this event it does not have to be a major burden to fulfill.

thanks again,

hope to see everyone on the mountain.

Brian Posey
