EMMANUEL CONGREGATIONAL
CHRISTIAN CHURCH

Worship Service Sundays: 10:30 am


November 16-17

Presented by Emmanuel Church


Learn about both the Devil's strategies aimed to rob you of your God-given joy and fulfillment, and the weapons we can fight him with!  Weapons like confession, deliverance, forgiveness and inner healing.


Be aware, though, that this retreat is not a 'cruise' - a time of relaxation and rest.  Rather, it is a time of intense teaching and practicing the things you learn.  So, come prepared not to evaluate the teaching and merely increase your knowledge, but come willing to participate in pursuing the freedom that God has for us!

Expectations and Preparation

Some people have powerful freeing experiences at retreats like this.  For others it proves to be a weekend during which great initial steps toward greater freedom are taken.  For still others it takes a few weeks before greater freedom is experienced.  We plan on hosting this retreat repeatedly, so there will be opportunity to take it again.  Also, we are more than willing to meet with you one-on-one after the retreat.  So, come prepared to enter a journey toward greater freedom.


Additionally, we encourage you to pray in preparation for the retreat.  Ask God to use the retreat to bring greater freedom.  Ask him to prepare your heart and mind.  Ask Him to make you sensitive to His voice and leading.


Finally, for some this type of retreat may be a new experience, and the temptation might be to come and 'check it out'.  Please, come to participate.


We look forward to seeing you there!
