On Dec 25th, The 2017 US East Coast Christmas Retreat concludes in the great blessing of God in Dover, NY. During the three-day retreat, attendees meditated on the deep meaning of salvation, the reason why we need Jesus, and were encouraged to participate in the Great Commision with authority from the Son(Matt 28:18-20) and bring God's Kingdom here on earth. Through the retreat, the joy of salvation and our future hope were made known, leaving this Christmas a most unforgettable one.
Around 40 New York Immanuel Church members joinned the retreat in Dover, NY and received abundant grace. They were touched by the messages from the study on the book of Romans this time and were grateful to the serving of Dover Immanuel Church memebers who also prepared wonderful Christmas play and kids programs.
"May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, who came to us and love us first be in our hearts and become the ever strength for us to live for him and God's kingdom," shared one Immanuel minister as he reflected on the meaningful three-day gathering.
