Retreat Grade 10
Focusing too much on our daily activities and routines can be one of the factors that “loosen” our relationship with God. The frenzy state and exhaustion of doing all the responsibilities usually cause us to be less sensitive toward God’s calling; what He tells and wants from us. That was why the 10th graders were invited to pause from their busy days and enjoy their moments with God through the retreat activity that they could get to be more sensitive toward their lives. It was also in line with this academic year’s school theme – Truly Yours – which emphasizes on how each one of us who belong to God ought to continually know Him through our personal relationship with Him, as well as the Graduate Profile No. 1 stating, “Have a growing relationship with the triune God through Jesus Christ.”
The retreat of grade 10 2018 was held for three days, beginning on the 3rd until 5th of September at Panti Samadi Kesusteran, Malino, South Sulawesi. In general, all of the 126 grade ten students were invited to get closer with God through a series of Bible exposition, praise and worship as well as a moment of sin confession. During the Bible exposition and discussion, it was observed that most of the students listened thoroughly and actively participated in it. The same went for the praise and worship session, in which almost all of them looked enjoying the moment when they praised and worshipped the Lord. Based on these positive responses, it could then be concluded that this year’s retreat’s targets had been achieved. To God be the glory.
