IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING TREASURE KEY WEEKEND CELEBRATION 4/12-14/2013
Thank you for attending our Pure Reality retreat at Camp Kulaqua. God greatly blessed us, and lives were changed, hearts were converted, souls were recommitted to the Lord, and to doing His will by choosing to live a pure life. Now that the seed has been planted, the real work begins: we have to nurture, feed, water, develop, encourage, and grow this seed in your life, until it becomes an integral part of your thinking and creates a need for you to alter your lifestyle to conform to this Pure Reality. You are cordially invited to spend the weekend with us to celebrate all our young people who have decided to be inducted or renew their vow of Purity.

When & Where
In order to counter the prevailing culture of sexual promiscuity, sexually transmitted diseases, and teen pregnancy Pure Reality is a God centered movement aimed at teaching young people about self worth, preserving their mental and physical health, establishing high goals and mapping a plan to reach these goals. Pure Reality holds monthly meetings to discuss issues important to the teens, and conducts a yearly 3-day retreat at Camp Kulaqua in High Springs, Florida, where the young people are educated on the dangers of sexual promiscuity, the reality of sexually transmitted diseases, the effects of teenage pregnancy, and the need to preserve themselves and focus God's purpose for their lives rather than this world's temporary pleasures.
