Salt and Light is a two-night, three-day retreat packed with fun, games, talks, and prayer. The retreat is designed to provide students with an opportunity to encounter God individually, but it is also a connectional encounter, where they meet and fellowship with other students from ISCF clubs and youth from all over Cayman. The retreat will offer passionate worship, Bible studies and a meaningful time with other teens at the Prospect Retreat Centre in Prospect, Grand Cayman. It is a great opportunity for your child to get more acquainted with their small group in addition to growing in community with other youth their age.
What is the theme about?
The theme, Salt and Light: Living As Salt and Light in a Godless World is based on Matthew 5:13-15: “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by people. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Your light must shine before people in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven."
The retreat will teach students the value and practice of cultivating a life of prayer, worship and devotion, so that they can be effective witnesses of Christ Jesus.
The maximum retreat capacity is 24 students. There are 12 male and 12 female slots available.
