Men's Retreat

March 2-4, 2018
 

Join us for Men’s Retreat to spend time with God and fellow men in the beauty of creation. Men’s Retreat is planned each year by Mountain States Mennonite Conference. The festivities for the weekend include worship times, foosball, ping pong, chess, human curling, snowshoeing, great fellowship and more!

 

"PRACTICE OF LOVE"

SPEAKER: Herm Weaver (Nederland, CO)

 
Herm will be leading the worship times by sharing his stories and thoughts. The theme for the weekend, "Practice of love" will center on practicing love as a core part of our life stories. Herm will guide participants in reflecting and living those stories, taking insights gathered during the weekend and applying them to life after the retreat. Woven throughout the weekend willb e times of reflection to meditate and allow the Spirit to move.
