Hot Sauce & Human Pyramids: Building Blocks For A Great Weekend

Event Recap

Posted on: March 15, 2017

On Friday, February 24th, Imprint students and leaders boarded a bus and headed over the pass to Leavenworth to spend a weekend learning more about God and building community. This retreat was an opportunity for students to get away from distractions and drama of everyday life, and dig into God’s word.

The weekend was packed full of sessions, small groups, sugar, late nights, coffee (for the leaders), scripture, and snowball fights. There was even a photo scavenger hunt involving hot sauce and human pyramids – all of the building blocks for an impactful weekend away!

Here are a few photos from the weekend we think you’ll enjoy:


Session 1: Friday Night

We arrived in Leavenworth on Friday evening and had a time of worship before opening up the Bible to Acts 9 to learn about Saul. Ben challenged the students to discuss what it means to have every part of your life open to God.

Snow Shenanigans & Session Two: Saturday Morning

After breakfast, we enjoyed a nice long walk in the snow to a park. The game for the morning was Snow Gladiator, and as you can see, David did not hold back! During the morning session we talked more about Saul on the road to Damascus, and the students were challenged to seek out intentional time with their leaders and discuss where they are at in their walk with God.

Saturday Afternoon:

Photo scavenger hunt, inner tubing, and fashion shows!


Session Three: Saturday Evening

We finished talking about Saul’s conversion and transformation (and renaming to Paul). Students were reminded that any true transformation and life change starts with a moment of honesty. In small groups, we discussed where students are versus where they would like to be in their relationship with God.



Morning session was spent in small groups, where students discussed next steps they could take, and how they were going to find support to help make these changes last. We boarded the bus and returned to Woodinville at around 4.

Thank you, Imprint Church, for your prayers and support throughout the weekend! Thank you, parents, for letting us spend time with your kids and learn a bit more about each of them. What we lacked in sleep for the weekend, we more than made up for in laughs, discussions, and pictures of snow.
