Men's retreat to be held in May

Time is fast approaching for the 3rd annual Lincoln County Christian Men's retreat. This year's retreat is being held May 4 - 6th at Camp Daniel Marshall in Lincolnton. The retreat is a non-denominational event open to all men. The purpose of the weekend is to draw more and more men to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and to a renewed commitment of serving Him.

Our guest speakers include Rev. Dave Hinson, pastor of Lincolnton United Methodist Church, Dr. Merle Strangway of The Learning Edge, Atlanta and Dr. Bill King Pastor of The River of Life Church in Eatonton, Ga.

On Friday evening we will hear from Pastor Dave who just moved to Lincolnton last June. Then on Saturday morning Dr. Strangway will be with us. He has worked with variety of businesses and nonprofit organizations across the United States and Canada. His Christian based seminars stress how to be more effective in areas of leadership, management and teamwork. Then on Saturday evening we will hear from Dr. Bill King who, in addition to being a pastor, is a Christian Addiction Counselor at Penfield Christian Home in Greensboro, Georgia. There will be testimonies from several local men. Also, the local praise and worship group "Unfettered" will provide our music and lead us in our worship time.

The weekend will be filled with plenty of music, worship, food, fun and fellowship including a fishing tournament on Saturday afternoon. The cost for the entire weekend is only $50 per person with financial assistant available if needed. There is a limited number of slots available for overnight guests, so we encourage everyone to register early before all slots are filled. The registration deadline is April 27, 2007.

If you can't be there for the entire event we invite you to attend the Friday and Saturday evening worship services.
