Grace Men's Retreat 2017: The Life of Peter
The Rainbow Lodge, North Bend WA

This year we are very excited to have guest speaker Hans Bayer join us for our Men’s Retreat. Hans spoke at our All Church Retreat in August of last year, and is returning for the weekend to explore with us the life of Peter in the New Testament: Peter’s compelling journey of identity and character transformation, and what this means for our own stories as we learn to be challenged and changed by the love of Christ in our lives.
Early bird registration runs until April 2nd and costs $145*. After April 2nd, registration is $155*. Attendance for just the day on Saturday is $60*.
