We would like to introduce to you the LHCC men's ministry new name, "The Forge". Inspired by Proverbs 27:17, The Forge is where men are shaped and sharpened by God and for God.

The Forge is hosting our second annual Men's Retreat at Skycroft again this year from April 6th (Thursday) to April 8th (Saturday).

On-site check-in begins on Thursday at 4:30PM. Thursday dinner will be served at 5:30 - 6:30PM. The costs of the retreat will depend on your availability. Like last year, we want to ensure all of the men can attend even with a full schedule. So the prices will be flexible depending on if you can make all or some of the days of the retreat.

This year's theme is, "Pursuing God through spiritual disciplines". We are asking that you would please join us as we pursue God together.

We benefit from generations being together to learn from each other. For young men this is especially significant in forming their identity, their values, their awareness of becoming young men who should give all they have for Christ. The retreat is open to teens 14 and up. We would love to see all the teen guys who can be there attending and being changed by God. Please pray and ask God about attending, don't forget, guests are welcome to come, including men you know who have not yet come to faith in Christ.

Registration is available via our website HERE or via a paper registration form at the book table before or after church on Sunday morning.

Payments can be made either online via PayPal (scroll to the bottom of the form) or by check (to Living Hope Community Church or LHCC) with "Men's Retreat 2017" turned in to the book table on Sunday.

Registration ends Sunday 3/12 and all payments are due at that time as well.
