Culture, Gospel & Church Women's Retreat 2019

from 125.00

..…so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works. (Titus 3:8)

Christians in the 21st century faces the same challenges as early 1st century Christians.

Bron will instruct us from Paul’s teaching to the first century Christians through the Epistle to Titus.

Come be refreshed, restored, and reinvigorated as you connect with other sisters in Christ through teaching, worship and community.
