Keynote Speaker: Heather Smith
Heather Smith writes: Using the “only” Psalm as a springboard (you will have to wait until the retreat to find out which one it is) and some Old Testament characters as examples, this retreat is going to be extremely practical. Through Biblical teaching and interaction we will examine how biblical rest and refreshment may be different than we imagine, bring God into our pressures and prayers, and discover how we can live a powerful life of worship in the day to day. I can’t wait to be with you! You won’t want to miss this year’s messages!
