The Break gives the youth an opportunity to discuss the teaching and retreat in a small group, as well as pray for each other’s intentions as the go forward from the retreat. The Send closes the session with a retreat wrap up and an opportunity for the youth to share about their retreat experience. Goal of This Night The goal of this session is for the youth to be empowered to bring the light of Christ into the darkness. Scripture Matthew 5:11 -12 Matthew 5:14 -16 John 3:19 -20 John 8:12 Key Concepts • Jesus wants everyone to experience new life in Him, so as we find the light of Christ in our darkness, we are called to share His light with others. • In order for us to share the light of Christ with others, we have to let His light into our lives. • It is not enough to simply experience the light of Christ, to keep it to ourselves and hide it away. We must go out and share about our God who loves us so much that He came to save us from all darkness.
