2016 McHenry Retreat - Change in Topic

2016 McHenry Retreat – Change in Topic

The topic for the 2016 McHenry Retreat has been updated. The theme of the retreat is now Come at me Bro! Devil, World and Sinful Nature vs. Baptized Child of God. Join us at Zion Lutheran Church in McHenry, IL on March 4th & 5th. There are lots of ways the devil, the world, and our sinful natures try to derail our faith in Jesus. They seek to test us away from Christ, but Jesus defeated temptation and overcame sin and death for you. At this retreat we’ll look at how the Spirit fights for us with the gifts of Jesus to keep us from temptation and evil. We’ll hear of the challenges the world presents and learn how to answer each one with Jesus and His Word, and see how he rescues us from all these things and keeps us in the faith through His Holy gifts. Join us in McHenry to hear from Rev. Mark Buetow on how the Spirit triumphs over our sinful nature as a baptized child of God. Pastor Buetow serves Bethel Lutheran Church in DuQuoin, IL and is the Media Executive for Higher Things, Inc. When: March 4-5, 2016 Where: Zion Lutheran Church | McHenry, IL Cost: $50 per person Contact: Rev. George Borghardt | 815-385-0859 or revborghardt@gmail.com Click here to download the registration packet. Click here to register online
