Step Back & Strengthen
Annual Spring Retreat (April 6 & 7) 2013
Redwood Glen Christian Camp, Loma Mar
Do you remember the last time that you stepped away from your daily routine and returned back nature? Well now’s the opportunity to return to nature, where you will be surrounded by tall redwood trees, seeing the sunrise peeking through the branches, while resting your exhausted body in a 4 star hotel style room, hungering stomachs will be filled with gourmet meals. But that’s not all, there will be spiritual nourishment for the hungering soul, strengthening our bonds, refocusing on our ministry and strategize our steps ahead. Jesus said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28) For this one weekend, let us come together, escape our daily routine for this one weekend to find rest in the Lord and take a step back to strengthen our faith in the Lord.
