Week 1: Mary Hulst, Adams Falls, Ice Cream
Mary Hulst from Calvin Seminary followed the Sunday evening kickoff with our Monday evening large group meeting. She used the story of Elijah fleeing to the desert in 1 Kings: 19 to describe to us how to make the most out of our summer. She encouraged us to assess our various needs and goals for the LCI program and how the Lord will help us thrive this summer and with our lives. We fit those needs and goals under the headings of “physical care, spiritual attentiveness, and living in community.”
On Wednesday, most of the Calvin LCI group loaded up in our cars and drove to Grand Lake to hike Adams Falls. What the (0.6 mile) hike lacks in length, it makes up for in beauty. You can tell from the pictures just how amazing the falls are. After the hike, we all got some Ice Cream on Grand Lake’s Main Street. Read More for a few pictures.

This week marks the beginning of the Calvin LCI 2008. We had nearly the entire Calvin group gather in the admin building to figure out a lot of the logistics of the summer including Small group meetings, worship opportunities, large group meetings and weekly activities. Afterwards, we walked over to the Indian Peaks fire ring for some smores, singing and a chance to mingle around the fire. Read more for a few pictures of the night.
