July 14 – 20, 2018 – WEEK-LONG SUMMER PREACHED RETREAT – Embracing The Call Of Christ, Leaving Your Nets and Boats Behind
July 14 @ 6:00pm - July 20 @ 10:00am
Over two-thousand years ago, Jesus stood on the shores of the Sea of Galilee and with hopeful longing, called his first disciples to leave behind their boats and nets, follow him and become fishers of people.
So began a transforming relationship with the one they would come to know as their Lord and Savior. So began their life-giving embrace and service of God’s kingdom, or God’s dream for the world, a dream made known to them, and to us, in and through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Together, let us hear again the call of Jesus in our life, the one who, perhaps long ago or more recently, first made a claim on our heart; let us examine what it is that Jesus is inviting us to embrace as well as leave behind so that we might hear his call with greater clarity and respond more eagerly; let us explore the pathway Christ invites us to walk with him and with each other, the cost to be paid, and the joy that awaits all who place their faith and trust in the loving and merciful God who desires to share his life with each of us through Christ our Lord.
