Why do we have a church retreat?
A retreat is an intentional time to break away from our everyday lives to strengthen our bond with God and our church family. It’s a time of refreshing and renewal. A time to slow down…pausing long enough to share a meal, an unhurried conversation, a leisurely afternoon by the lake, or a brisk hike through nature. It’s a time to worship together, pray for one another, and encourage each other in the Lord. A time to get in one accord!
And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved
