2016 Men’s retreat

We are excited to announce the 2016 Presbytery of the Midwest Men’s Retreat to be held February 19-20, 2016 at Green Lake Conference Center, Green Lake, WI.  This year the theme will be The Fear of the Lord: A Foundation of Christian Living. Our speaker will be the Reverend Jim Hoekstra who is the organizing pastor of Immanuel Church (OPC) in Andover, MN. 

Come and join other men from the Presbytery of the Midwest for a challenging time in God’s Word as well as opportunities for fellowship and fun at Green Lake Conference Center.  The Rev. Hoekstra will lead us in reflecting on various Scriptures that cover this fundamental subject of the Fear of the Lord.

There will be small group sessions aimed at fostering discussion and further thought on our topic. Open time in the afternoon will allow for quiet reflection, fellowship and recreational activities such as basketball, broom ball and ping pong.
