2007 GCC Men's Retreat

This weekend I attended my first GCC Men's Retreat. It was at Epworth Forrest Conference Center in North Webster. We listened to Mark Beeson and Dr. Bob. We had small group discussions. And one breakout session to focus on a specific area of our lives. I had a good time. Met a few new people, and took steps to be closer to Christ. This retreat provided a great time to unplug from life and refocus on what is important. I do not want to give the impression that it was relaxing, because the schedule kept us busy, but it was an event where you could relate with other guys and receive encouragement, guidance, and leadership. The theme of the weekend was "Rise Up". Become the man that God has called us to be.

Rise up, O men of God!
Have done with lesser things.
Give heart and mind and soul and strength
To serve the King of kings.

Rise up, O men of God!
The kingdom tarries long.
Bring in the day of brotherhood
And end the night of wrong.

Rise up, O men of God!
The church for you doth wait,
Her strength unequal to her task;
Rise up and make her great!

Lift high the cross of Christ!
Tread where His feet have trod.
As brothers of the Son of Man,
Rise up, O men of God!
