What is the meaning of church and why do we have to attend every week? Why do we have to be tied to organized religion? Isn't belief in Jesus enough?
Many of us come to church every Sunday but don’t know why. Our retreat theme this year is “Church: Why Bother?" We’ll come together to ask some serious questions about the meaning and mission of the church. We’ll share our expectations and personal stories of why we bother to stay in the church. We’ll even hear from others who are not a part of the church and learn from their thoughts.
Our guest speaker, Howard Brown, is a pastor at Christ Central Church in North Carolina. He will come and share sermons with us centered on the importance of church. Join us as we explore this question together: Why bother with church?
This year's retreat will be held from October 5th-7th, 2018 at:
Honors Haven Resort & Spa
1195 Arrowhead Rd.
Ellenville, NY 12428
