Topic: “A Heart Set On Pilgrimage”

The book of Malachi teaches us consequences when God’s people stop worshipping Him from their hearts, making religion a routine. God’s last word given to Israel before the coming of Christ was “I have loved you!” Malachi calls us back to sincere worship and obedience to our Great God and Savior Jesus Christ. “Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage” (Psalm 84:7, NIV).

Guest Ambassadors: COL and Mrs. Arnie Ahnfeldt, USA (Ret.)


Optional Dinner Friday at 1730. RSVP Required! $15 additional cost for adults (13+); $10.50 additional cost for ages 3-12.

The retreat starts with a session on Friday evening and ends on Sunday at 1330 (after lunch).
