Scattered Retreat for VMC Leaders and Spouses

March 13, 2021 // 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Life is very stressful on so many levels right now.

When life got stressful for Jesus, he walked away from the crowd and he went to be alone with God. (i.e. Mark 6:30-32; 46)

Come away and rest. Come away and listen.
