It was a really exciting year for the chapter of Cru at Gogebic. We had an amazing time seeing God work through the leaders and the students. We had a huge growth throughout the year, and by then end of the year we had anywhere from 20-30 students attending our weekly meetings. We were also one of the most active student groups on campus, and hosted many activities. These included a Huge water balloon fight with 1200 water balloons, many games of Ultimate Frisbee, and Easter egg hunt, Taking a trip to the twin cities to attend a John Piper Conference, and participating in the UP Cru fall and spring retreats. We also had a couple of days of outreach on campus, handing out coffee and talking with students on campus.

 

Spring Retreat 2012 - Registration

We had quite an exciting time at the spring retreat, and almost 20 students from GCC attended. With students involved in leading discussion groups, working the registration table to sign people in, helping lead music, or even just performing in the talent show on Saturday night, it was an awesome time to see them grow. The most exciting thing was to see Lucas S. and Kaite A. come to Christ during the weekend! We’re praising God for their decisions and excited to see them grow in the years to come. Lucas will actually be joining our leadership team for the fall.

This will be a summer of preparation for the fall, and thankfully the majority of the leadership team will be around to work on the Fall happenings. We praise god for the year He has given us, and we are awaiting to see what He will do through us in the Fall.
