This winter, SY is headed to Winter Freeze on February 9-11. What’s Winter Freeze? It’s a weekend away for students, centered around taking time to freeze in the middle of the busyness of life, to focus on Jesus. Our lives are so chaotic with pressure at school, stress at home, drama in relationships, and inner struggles… sometimes we just need a break from ourselves to spend time with our Heavenly Father. If you are a middle or high school student you will not want to miss this incredible weekend at Camp Woodlands. Even if you’ve never been a part of Sanctuary Youth in the past, we hope you will join us for this weekend. If you have any questions about Winter Freeze please contact Emily Hardie.
