Where do you find your value?
How do you measure your worth in today’s world? Do you compare yourself to others to make yourself feel better (or worse)? Want to know the truth of it all? Then come away with us to Wesley Forest and learn what you need to know.
If you have never been on retreat before, now is the time to try it.
If you have joined us in the past, we look forward to having you back.
Retreats are a great way to get to know your fellow brothers in Christ. You will learn more about these guys in one weekend than you can in a year’s worth of Sunday Services.
Do yourself, and your family, a favor. Sign up today.
