Ladies Retreat This Weekend!

Ladies Retreat This Weekend!

We are just a few short days away from JOY, our 2017 Ladies Retreat!

 
Officially, we kick off at 7:00 PM, Friday night March 3rd, but we know God ordained an appointed time years ago! Our prayer is that we all hold up our hearts for the Lord to examine and search out as we begin the final countdown to Friday night, 7:00 PM! We are in fully surrendered mode with indescribable anticipation of all the Lord has longed to do and will do in each of us throughout this retreat!
 
As word and interest has spread, we have shifted our thoughts from preparation and implementation to the overflow that is coming. It is going to be a weekend filled with every good thing from the Lord such that we will not be able to contain it, nor do we want to, but instead we choose to allow Him to overflow our boundaries, overflow our expectations, overflow our borders as we continually deepen our level of surrender, obedience and faith!

Legacy Youth Retreat

file_oct_20_7_53_58_pmLEGACY RETREAT is coming up soon for Student Ministries. Join us for an exciting and refreshing time together. We will have a concert, lots of food, games, and more. Bring a friend and get ready for a great night! 
 
The Legacy Retreat is an opportunity for students to establish or re-establish a personal relationship with Jesus. Acts chapter 17:28 “‘By his power we live and move and exist.’ Some of your own poets have said: ‘For we are his children.’” We are God’s children, which in turn we are what He has left for the world. We are He’s Legacy! What are you living for? What are you doing for Jesus?
“One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts.” Psalm 145:4
