Men's Retreat

Friday, September 27, 2019 (8 pm) - Sunday, September 29, 2019 (1 pm)       View Video

This year’s theme is "Worthy Competitors."  We live in a competitive world. We compete in our jobs, with material things, and need to always be ‘on top’. It’s hard to live up to all the expectations and demands that our world puts on us. It becomes exhausting and distracting. How do we stop the cycle?

What if we began viewing the world less competitively and more compassionately? What if we saw others not as the competitors, but as worthy rivals who help make us better people? Join us at the Men’s Retreat this September as we learn how to play the “infinite game of faith.”
