What a great last couple of weeks! Last weekend, several of our women went to the Camp Hunt Ladies Retreat for a time of fun, fellowship, and faith-building. From all accounts, it seems to have been a hit with our ladies who attended. The plans for the 2012 Ladies Retreat are in the making and I will get more information to you as soon as possible so that you can plan to attend next year, you won’t want to miss out!
This past Monday, four of us went to Binghampton and worked along side the Endwell Church of Christ in order to help the area recover from the massive flooding. We were able to help remove drywall, flooring, cabinets, and insulation from two houses and found the owners to be very grateful about our service. Keep the work in your prayers as many whom they are helping are not church members but people who are in the surrounding community. What a great ministry opportunity for Endwell and a great mission opportunity for Clifton Park where we can not only show the love of Christ to non-Christians, but we can help our fellow members of Christ reach out to their community! I hope to have a few more work dates soon so be thinking about going and helping on our next trip as we live out the mission of Christ!
Finally, this weekend was the Camp Hunt Men’s Retreat! The theme was “Living a Life that Pleases God” and was taken out of the book of 1 Thessalonians. We enjoyed many wonderful speakers and great fellowship with each other. As stated above, the plans are in the making for next year’s Men’s Retreat and I hope you will attend. Wouldn’t it be great for Clifton Park to be represented by many members at both retreats!
