Beyond Virtual Christianity: Calling, Passion and Purpose!
April 24-26 (Friday night to Sunday afternoon)
Join Columbia's adult singles, with guest speaker Rich Hurst, as we move "Beyond Virtual Christianity" to pursue our callings, passions and purposes in life. Life is an adventure! On this adventure some people choose to stay at home while others choose to risk. This retreat looks at what it takes to choose to risk by celebrating and living into the transformed life.
The group will meet at Columbia for the Friday night activity and then drive to the Concord Retreat Center. Cost is $105.
