Event description



Our Alpha Retreat is an important part of our community and growth together. The purpose of the Day Away is for us to take time out of the busyness and distractions of life, to reflect and think about all that we have learned so far together. It is also a time for us to get to know one another more without the distractions and constraints of our normal evenings. During our day away we will focus on fun, conversation, watch a couple Alpha videos on prayer and the Holy Spirit.

General Info:

When: Saturday, March 17; 9:00am-7:00pm

Where: Mount Baldy Village Church, Mount Baldy, CA
