Do you know the history behind the creation of RETREATS? Well, here is a brief history lesson found in "Discovering God", written by Dr. David Jeremiah. Around AD 270, Anthony the Great began a movement when he moved to the Middle Eastern desert seeking spiritual purity, enlightenment, solitude, and perfection. He attracted many followers there who were nuns, monks, hermits, and ascetics. His followers were known as the Desert Fathers and Desert Mothers. It turns out that their movement of "retreating" has led to today's practice of taking a "retreat" to refresh oneself spiritually. How about you? Are you looking for a place of peace, rest, and spiritual refreshment? Come to the Revelation Retreat 2016 where we can offer you a weekend of respite. Come to the Revelation Retreat 2016 where we provide that place of rest within a serene spot in nature surrounded by prayer, Bible study, meditation, fellowship, and praise & worship. Come to the Revelation Retreat 2016 where you can "retreat" from the cares, worries and busyness of life. Retreat with Jesus here and He will give you rest. "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28 ESV).
Christian Fellowship Is A Priority At The Revelation Retreat
Although we offer a comprehensive list of fantastic activities at our retreat, CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP within our attendees is a big emphasis. Fellowship is an important component of joining the Brotherhood of Believers in Jesus Christ. In Acts 2:42, Luke describes this fellowship of the Believers, "They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer." In the MacArthur Study Bible (ESV), John MacArthur explains the concept of "fellowship" as, "partnership or sharing - because Christians become partners with Jesus Christ and all other believers (1 John 1:3), it is their spiritual duty to stimulate one another to righteousness and obedience." We create an environment at the Revelation Retreat that nurtures the building of brethren relationships through the fellowship that is present. Join us at the Revelation Retreat 2016 this July 21-23 at the New London Reservoir Campground & Amphitheater to experience the sincere Christian fellowship that exists and benefit from the building of righteous relationships with family and friends.
