March Highlights
Eight youth and two adults enjoyed participating in the All Georgia Youth Event that was held at the New Ebenezer Retreat Center. We had a total of 173 youth and adults attending from all over Georgia and filled every bed at the center! We enjoyed our guest speaker, Pastor Jay Gamelin and his unique presentation of our theme “By Faith”. The weekend was full of fun and fellowship!
