Men Retreat to Strengthen their Mission (3/17/17)

The Mens Fellowship group followed a tradition this year; we went on a retreat to Black Rock. This was our 16th annual retreat. Routine? Not really! Every time you open yourself up for an encounter with God, something different is likely to happen. The topic of this year’s retreat was “Being a Man with a Mission”, and we explored how our “mission” plays out in our personal, family and church lives. Retreats aren’t just “book learning” or...

BLAST Getting Ready to Advance! (1/13/17)

Our Youth Group (BLAST) is ready to take off into their Midwinter Advance.  What’s the Midwinter Advance?  First of all, it is probably more commonly known as a “retreat,” but we  always want to look forward so we’ve latched on to the now cliche term “Advance” instead of “Retreat.”  The Advance will be held at America’s Keswick in Whiting, NJ during the weekend of January 13-15. In preparation for this weekend, our youth have been raising...
