2018 Men's Retreat

The Masculine Mandate: Grace-empowered working and keeping


Genesis 2:15 says “The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.” During this, our first Redemption City Men’s Retreat, we hope to dig into this mandate and see how we can fulfill this calling as new creations in Christ. We will spend time looking at God’s word with a few men teaching us. We will lift our voices to the LORD in song and prayer, and have no doubt, we will eat together and  hang out as brothers.

All this will happen at Woodland camp north of Rochester on June 1-2. Below we have the details as well as a form for you to fill out.

Coram Deo!
