Power Connection 2021


Wonder is found when we encounter something new, inexplicable. But sometimes we wander through life unaware of the wonder we are missing. Similar to the Israelites in the desert, God was working but they weren’t looking. Yet God’s wonder can simply be found when we stop focusing on ourselves and start focusing on God. All students in grade 6-8 are welcome to join us for Power Connection 2021 at Central College in Pella, IA. (note change of location) $100/student (scholarships available.) We will depart on Friday, June 25 and return home Sunday, June 27. For additional information and to sign up visit Submit payment to Becky Ossefoort by Wednesday, March 24.
