Covenant’s Men’s Group meets for breakfast on the third Saturday morning of every month in the Fireside Room. Our meetings generally focus on Biblical study and sharing events in our lives. We continue to encourage the young men in our congregation, as we welcome and encourage all men, to attend our breakfasts, retreats, and other gatherings. Our time together has provided a terrific opportunity for us to learn from each other, to help each other through work and family difficulties, and to grow spiritually.
The Covenant Men’s Group is currently planning several opportunities to “Advance Our Faith Through Retreats”: a one-day retreat on Saturday, September 16 in Palo Alto, and a weekend retreat on November 3-5 in Monterey. The theme for the retreats will be “Sharing Our Faith With the World.” We will focus on strengthening our abilities to share faith with others, as part of our discipleships. Retreats provide us the opportunity to gather for extended reflection and fellowship. Our retreats are prayerful and spiritual. We find our friendships continually renewed and strengthened.
The tuition for the one-day retreat in September is $25, including food and retreat materials. The tuition for the weekend retreat in November is $150, including food, lodging, and retreat materials. Scholarships are avail- able. Please contact Frank Bernstein to let him know whether you will be attending one or both retreats.
Since the one-day retreat in September occurs on the usual day of the month for the Men’s Breakfast, the retreat will take the place of the breakfast, and will also include lunch. The next men’s group breakfast meeting will be Saturday, October 21, at 8:00 a.m. in the Fireside Room. We will discuss some selections from the Bible, and prayerfully share our joys and concerns.
All men are welcome at all men’s group events. Please join us, and feel free to bring a friend.
