Vertical Reality ’09

What is Vertical Reality?

Vertical – situated at the highest point.

Reality – that which has existence apart from any idea any mind may have of it, and which would exist if there were no mind anywhere to entertain a thought of it.

 

Our Father is situated at the highest point. When Isaiah wrote about his vision of God in Isaiah 6, he said he saw the LORD sitting on a throne ‘high and lifted up’. He is far from us, but through Jesus Christ – God who is ‘high and lifted up’ – has drawn near to us. We want all of us to become aware of the reality of what the gospel has done for us. It has given us access to God – we now have the spiritual capacity to relationally connect to God. It is not what we have done, but it is what God has done through His Son to make this a reality for all who will believe in Him.

Vertical Reality weekend is a retreat we take each spring to help us grow in using the ‘means’ God has given us to develop a real intimate relationship with Him. Each year we will focus on a spiritual habit, in the past we have studied, reading God’s Word, memorizing the Word, church, stewardship, worship, fasting and prayer, we engage in these spiritual habits as a means to get to the end and the end is to know and experience God more fully. That is our goal, our desire – to grow in our love and knowledge of Him so that we may live for Him in a world that desperately needs to know Him!

Who can attend? ALL students (7-12)

Dates: April 24-25

Cost: $25 per student / $40 max per family (covers all expenses)

Last day to sign up: Sunday, April 5. You can sign up by filling out blue card in youth area or here.

Theme: God and My stuff

Materialism and the desire for more are sucking the life out of us all. Our hope for the weekend is to expose in all of us that we have believed the lie, that my hunger for stuff will stop ONCE I get this ___________. What does God have to say about this and how do I fight this lie? Come find out at this years—VR ‘09
