The Women’s Ministry would like to give you an update on the retreat planned for this weekend at Lakepoint Resort in Eufaula, AL. The topic this year is The Sovereignty of God, the Inerrancy of Scripture, and Present Day Culture. We will cover the “hot topics” of our culture including abortion, social justice, and human sexuality from a Biblical perspective. Not only will we explore how we should believe about these issues, but the Biblical reasons why. Our goal is to be able to give a Biblical defense for our beliefs and to respond in compassion.
