  2. World Impact West Coast Siafu Men's Retreat: The men in our congregation have been invited to attend World Impact's West Coast Siafu Men's Retreat at The Oaks Camp and Conference Center on September 18-20.

    The theme for this year's retreat is "Unwavering Warriors with an Unshakable Kingdom."

    Below is a short write-up on the retreat:

    "The enemy of the kingdom of God has bound men to the pleasures and concerns of this world. Men have lost sight of the unshakable kingdom. The return of the king is inevitable though. This present world will be shaken to the core and what's really real, the true eternal kingdom of God, now invisible, will become visible. Righteousness, peace, and joy will rule in the kingdom. Until that day, the captain of the Lord's army is calling men to engage the forces of darkness and the cares of this world. These warriors carry a shield whose inner core is one of honor. Their life is one of rugged sacrifice and uncompromising vigilance. These are the unwavering warriors who fight with valor for the expansion and advancement of the unshakable kingdom."

    A few more details:

         * Lodge registration: $92/person
