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.
What an amazing start we had to our “Prove Yourself a Man” Men’s fellowship, based on King David’s last words to his son Solomon. (1 Kings 2:2-4) We spent some time in worship, we heard a panel study on the importance of God’s Word in our lives, and then got into small groups for discussion. We ended the night with some good food and fellowship.
All that to say, come and join us on Wednesday nights, at 7PM as we get together with the the men of the church, fellowship and break bread together.
