As we get further and further away from this past Men’s Retreat, it is easy to forget the amazing things that Jesus did in the lives of the Men who attended. We wanted to make available the audio recordings of each of the main sessions to encourage you to continue on in steadfastness.
Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. James 1:12
On Septemeber 14th, nearly 100 men from Reliance attended the 2012 Men’s Retreat, held at the Idyllwild Pines Christian Conference Center. The men went up to focus on their relationship with the Lord and grow in their walks and the Lord showed up in a mighty way. Men were developing new friendships with each other, praying together, encouraging one another, and were making decisions to respond to God’s calling in their life. Best of all, three men gave their lives to the Lord.
1. Take advantage of not having to prepare a “real’ meal and let the kids choose from any cereal they want for dinner. Why should Dad be the “fun parent” all the time?
2. Pray for your man to encounter God in a real life-giving way.
3. Stay up late “pinning” till your heart’s content with no guilt attached to the way you are using your late-night hours.
4. Pray for the speakers at the retreat.
He Loves Me is the refreshing theme of Reliance Church’s upcoming women’s retreat, featuring guest speaker Sandy MacIntosh. Ladies, you do not want to miss this opportunity to escape the hectic everyday distractions and draw nearer to God. The retreat will be an uplifting time of fellowship, worship, prayer, and reflection. Mothers, feel free to bring your daughters if they are 16 or older. Women of all ages are encouraged to attend! We will be staying at the Calvary Chapel Conference Center, scenically located near a serene lake, complete with a bookstore, coffee shop, swimming pool, and tennis and volleyball courts.
