The men in our church are getting ready to head up to the Green Valley this weekend for our mens retreat. The theme of this years retreat is "Stand Fast", taken out the passage of scripture in Ephesians 6:13. The reason we chose this theme is because we believe that we are in a spiritual battle. Men are often on the front line of that battle. We are called to stand in the gap for our marriages and for our children. Many men have given up the fight all together. Some have become casualties in this war. As we prayed, we really felt strongly that we wanted to encourage the men in our fellowship to Stand Fast. We need to be equipped to know how to stand. We want to be aware of what we are up against, so that we can have the victory. Joining us this year will be our guest pastor and long time friend of mine, Pastor Richard Cimino.
We are anticipating a wonderful time with the men from Calvary. Keep us in prayer. I will let you know how everything goes once we return.
