Church retreat

Last weekend I attended a church retreat for an extended time of fellowship. We spent the night in a Finnish seminary center outside of the city. It was fun to have the whole church together.

On Friday night everyone started arriving as they got off work. We ate a light supper and then had a time of worship and two lessons on our theme of the weekend, which was Dedication.

On Saturday we had more times of worship and study, and during the breaks there were opportunities for discussion and encouragement.

We also heard a testimony from two ladies (one a missionary from Norway, pictured below) who are serving in Medvezhegorsk.

We went home tired, but in good spirits and with new things to consider.

You are to be holy to me because I, the LORD, am holy, and I have set you apart from the nations to be my own. Lev.20:26
