Every Man Has a Story

“Iron sharpens iron, and one person sharpens the wits of another.” –Proverbs 27:17

We are excited to announce our upcoming Men’s Retreat, to be held this September 29 to October 1! The speaker this year will be Doug Hostetler. He will present on the theme, “Every Man Has a Story,” based on Proverbs 27:17: “Iron sharpens iron, and one person sharpens the wits of another.” All men 16 and older are invited to join together at Brethren Woods to challenge one another and grow in their faith together! The retreat costs $85 which includes all meals, housing, and activities, and the registration deadline is Monday, September 25. Church support enables so many more summer campers to come to camp. Would your church consider supporting men to come to this event?
