Children’s Spiritual Life Retreat: At The Table

Cost: $90 per person

Early-bird deadline: 9/26/19

Final deadline: 10/7/19

“Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35

Throughout scripture, food often serves as a catalyst for Jesus to not only teach about the Kingdom of God, but to also serve and show love to His followers, strangers, and yes, even sinners!  Jesus fed the hungry and demanded others to do the same, but he also spoke to the hunger of the soul. Despite the differences of the people Jesus taught, they were united at the table of Christ, and only at this table would their hunger and thirst truly be quenched. Join us for an amazing weekend when we can gather at the table together!
