Hey, Guys -
We hope you can join us for our first HCF Men's Retreat, Thursday, October 31st - Saturday, November 2nd. If you haven't made your hotel reservations, you can do that by calling Tanglewood Resort at 800-833-6569 (www.tanglewoodresort.com). Be sure to mention that you are part of the Highland Country Fellowship group so we know you are coming.
We have a great agenda planned for the event.
We will get started on Thursday evening around 7:00 PM and will eat dinner together. Tanglewood Resort is about a one and a half to two hour drive from Dallas depending on traffic.
Bill will be leading interactive sessions on Thursday evening and Friday morning. His topic will be, “What do you do when you’ve blown it with God?”
“For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23). The beginning of our Christian walk is the acknowledgment of this very truth. But, what do we do when we’ve sinned? How do we restore our relationship with God? We know in our heads that grace and forgiveness are promises of Christianity, but we don’t always experience them in our hearts. We will look at the relationship between Jesus and Peter to see how Jesus modeled restoration in John’s gospel.
Be sure to bring your Bibles as we spend time answering these questions together.
On Thursday, we are organizing a golf outing for anyone who would like to play. If you would like to join in, please contact Sammy at 214-773-6982 for the details and to reserve your spot.
On Friday afternoon, for those interested in Striper fishing, we are planning a guided fishing trip which will cost $145 per person. If you would like to fish, please reply to this email no later than next Friday, October 11th so that we can reserve your spot.
For those not planning to fish, you will have free time to just relax or participate with guys in other activities offered at the resort including horseshoes, game room with billiards and ping pong, golf, tennis courts, horseback riding, basketball and hiking.
On Friday evening, we will have dinner and fellowship at a local restaurant near Tanglewood.
On Saturday, we will eat breakfast together and have a short wrap-up led by Bill before we head back home.
For this trip, everyone is responsible for handling their own travel and hotel arrangements and trip expenses.
