Last year, the Men’s Group held their first retreat which they hope will be the first of many to come. Although it was a short two day event, it turned out to be a huge success. While spending time away from the stresses of everyday life; work, school, phones, computers and televisions, they had an opportunity to get to know each other a bit more in an informal environment. They prepared meals, gathered for discussions of scripture, what they meant, and how they apply to Christians today. The retreat was capped off with a campfire, s’mores, singing, and communion.
This year’s retreat is themed “Patience During the Storm”. There will be a guest speaker who will be teaching scripture and exercises to help learn how to have patience and let God work in our lives.
There are costs associated with the retreat, and just as last year, the men are organizing fund raising events to help cover the expenses. Events to support this include:
The Men’s Group will be presenting “Captain Smarty Pants” in concert at All Pilgrims on Friday April 19, 2013 at 7:30 pm with a dance following the show. Please join us for a night of music, dancing and fun.
The men will also be hosting a car wash on Sunday, April 21, from 1-5 pm at the corner of 14th and John (across from the Safeway).
