Men’s Retreat

When Jesus said follow me he really is saying: Have faith in me; Live life’s adventure with me; talk to me; trust me; give me all your situations you find yourself in; cast all your cares on me. Without me you will have no chance to be satisfied or fulfilled. Come to the 16th Annual Men’s Retreat on February 10-12, 2017 at the Holiday Inn in Manitowoc and learn how to live life to the fullest. 
 
The theme for this year’s retreat is, “The Christian Atheist.” It is based on a book with the same name. The book is written by Pastor Craig Groeschel who admits that he is a recovering Christian atheist. He describes a Christian atheist as a Christian living as if God doesn’t exist. They want just enough of Jesus to keep them out of hell and just enough of Jesus to get them into heaven. They forget the words of Jesus that He wants all of us and wants a very active commitment from us, He wants a wholehearted passion, and a blazing heart of love.
Please call Jim Berg at 414-462-5871 with any questions.
