Here are a few photos from our last Truth & Treat here at Calvary Chapel El Monte. Every year we do our best to “redeem” halloween and use it to reach out to the community with Bible games for the kids, gospel outreach to all, and of course great food and fellowship.
This past weekend, September 13-15, close to 60 men went up to the San Bernardino Mountains, to Twin Peak Christian Conference Center for our annual Men’s Retreat. This year was an absolute blessing, especially for the guys who went with us for the first time.
The theme of this year’s conference was the “Battle Cry” out of Judges 6-8. Through the life of Gideon, we looked at how God calls, cleanses, cuts, conquers, and crowns us as Christian men.
We were blessed to welcome El Monte raised, Pastor Ryan Hussein from Calvary Chapel Sweet Hills in Banning, as our guest speaker.
As always the Twin Peaks Conference Center is a great place to be – the facility, staff, and of course, the food is fantastic, but the Word and fellowship are still the highlights every year. If for some reason you weren’t able to go with us this year, seriously pray about making plans to go next time, if the Lord wills.
Check out the links to the studies below, and if you are one of the men who went up the mountain, please take a few minutes to leave a comment on how the Lord used the retreat to encourage you, hopefully it will encourage others as well.
If you weren’t able to make to our last Marriage Fellowship, you can still hear Ray’s study by clicking below. We encourage you to mark your calendars for our fellowship which will be Saturday, September 21 at 6:00pm as we get together for epic potluck food, fellowship, and a message for all married and engaged couples.
Our first ever “Girl’s Night Out” was held on Tuesday night, July 31. This evening was devoted to the young women of Calvary Chapel El Monte between the ages of 15 & 25. The night began with fellowship, food (catered by Petrillo’s) and a candy bar. Cynthia Garcia led us in worship and then Stephanie Saldana shared a message entitled “A Simple Trust” based on Proverbs 3:5-6 and Psalms 9:10. We ended the night with Sheila Rodriguez showing us how to paint on canvas. What a wonderful night it was!
All the sisters are encouraged to watch the study below – and join us next time, if you can.
