Jesus taught us to pray for the Lord’s kingdom to come on earth — and He intends that we be part of the answer to our prayers! We have been saved and empowered to partner with Him in that process, to walk in the works He has prepared for us. This is the calling that we have heard and responded to over the years. We didn’t hear an invitation to a comfortable Christianity focused on our needs, but a summons to join the King on His mission.
This is what we want to explore at the upcoming Fall Retreat. Our theme is ‘Thy Kingdom come … Being part of the answer to our prayer’. Jesus taught us to pray for the Lord’s Kingdom to come here and now, and we need to be ready to be used to fulfill that prayer. What does this look like in our daily lives as family members, workers, neighbors? How can we be more deliberate about it? What might this mean for us not only in Washtenaw County, but in the world beyond? How does the Spirit empower us for this calling?
Join us to explore these issues together at the Fall Retreat on Friday 9/30 and Saturday 10/1 at Faholo Conference Center in Grass Lake. We will engage these issues through several means:
Guest Speaker Billy Kangas Billy formerly led MissionChrist and brings insights from his study at North Park seminary in Chicago. Taking the Gospel to the ‘marketplace’ has been a passion of his for years..
Sharings from folks actively involved in a variety of ways of seeing ‘Kingdom come’
Workshops where we can talk together how to be Kingdom leaven in different settings like our work, families, neighborhood, and beyond.
Prayer! Presenting ourselves before the Lord for His instruction, commissioning and empowering..
In addition to the serious business of seeking the Lord, we are also going to enjoy the life of the Kingdom through meals, fellowship and recreation. There are options for spending the night Friday or commuting out to Faholo. For more information you can go to these pages or click here to register on line.
