Under the theme “It’s Possible,” more than 50 MCCs participated in a weekend of spiritual revitalization, revival, and discovery.
David McKenzie, Atlantic Union Conference Adventist Youth Ministries director, kicked off the weekend on Friday night with a story about Moses and Joshua working together to defeat the Amalekites at Rephidim (Exodus 17:8-13). The message emphasized how faith, work, and prayer are combined to defeat the enemy.

Saturday evening included some time for fun, with a social, complete with games, volleyball, and basketball. Mendoza gave a final spiritual charge to the MCCs before they left on Sunday.
