2016 Winter Retreat at RVR
December 9-10, 2016:
The first weekend in December was quite eventful for FCA MDLacrosse. While the 2021 and 2022 Blue teams were at UNC, the 2022 White, 2023 Blue, 2023 White, 2024 and 2025 teams spent Friday evening and Saturday atRiver Valley Ranch in Manchester, MD.
The FCA MD youth teams put down the lacrosse sticks for the weekend and spent time growing in their friendships and relationship with God. Teams participated in a variety of activities including paintball, ropes courses and RVR’s famous 1,500 foot zip-line throughout the weekend.
Following the retreat, our High School teams came to RVR on Sunday for the FCA MD High School Summit. Players spent the day competing against one another in paintball, “Ninja Warrior” course races and dodge ball. Players on the winning team all received a Chipotle Gift Card.
Former Navy SEAL and actor Remi Adeleke spoke to both groupsthis weekend, engaging them in a powerful message about his life story and theGospel of Jesus Christ. Players also spent time in team Bible studies wherethey discussed Remi’s message, titled “The Bridge to a Holy Relationship.”
Following the retreat, a parent shared that, “[my son] wasso moved by the speaker Friday night. He told us everything (Ithink maybe even word for word- my boy is a talker!) that Remi said. He"YouTubed" him to share his story with us. He said he was soincredible and respects him so much as a person and as a Christian.”
