Men’s Retreat at Hills of Peace

photo 3IMG_0263

To those of you who are being invited for the first time, welcome we hope you will join us this year.
The Community of Christ is a global church committed to the Pursuit of Peace We Proclaim Jesus Christ and Promote Communities of Joy, Hope, Love and Peace. We work to be the hands and feet of Christ in our world and believe that we as disciples have a place in bringing about the Beloved Community of God here on earth.
This years guest minister is Frank Young a missionary from Montana who has been actively living out his discipleship in the First Nations communities and working to re-integrate released offenders into the community as whole people with a grounding in Christ. Frank has a wealth of experience and has also served as the chaplain to the Billings, MT Police service.
This is a weekend where we get to hang out and fellowship and re-connect with our God and old friends and establish new friendships. The weekend starts on Friday night and ends Sunday at noon. We try hard not to try to hard so there is time just to hang out because we hate having every second of our lives filled. We hit all ages – high school to 88 years old and have the complete spectrum of attendees – theologists, members,friends of members, unchurched, 5 year veterans and rookies. We eat often – and well.
Please register with Dan Esch or on the 6th Annual Community of Christ Mens Retreat facebook page by September 10 so we have an accurate count for our cooks who we definitely want to keep happy!IMG_0251
