North Mountain Lutheran Parish Youth with their cabin at Lost and Found! Lost and Found is the Virginia Synod Middle School retreat held at Eagle Eyrie in Lynchburg, VA. The theme for this year was "Caught in the Current" We explored being caught in God's current while being pulled every which way in our busy lives with school, and other activities where we are involved.
"Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." ~Matthew 6:4
AGAPE* and Rachel Kurtz
The youth went to the AGAPE* and Rachel Kurtz concert at Bethel Lutheran in Winchester. We heard about the 100 Wells Tour and their attempts to get clean water into parts of the world that do not have access to clean water.
