mawio'mi: the gathering, ANBC Men's Retreat 2014

This past weekend we hosted our fourth annual men's retreat at ANBC. It was a bit of touch and go there for a bit; registration for the event was down quite significantly this year. In communicating with the executive we decided to go ahead with the event for this year. But with the low attendance we will be re-evaluating the event for next year.

I am pleased that we were able to move ahead with the retreat, I always find it a refreshing and encouraging time. Once again this year we were blessed to have a speaker who held high the Gospel and challenged us as men to strive to honour God in our very lives. pastor Bill Emberley from Grace Baptist Church in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia was with us for our four sessions in the Word - and what a blessing it was. We were further blessed to have several men join us from Chapel of the Living Water in Tracey, NB; along with their pastor, Josh Cameron - who led us in worship for the weekend.

The weekend is always a great time of fellowship and discussion.

And of course it wouldn't be a men's retreat without a little healthy competition.

This year the guys competed to build birdhouses; which we are auctioning off for a project at ANBC.

These fine gentlemen served faithfully in the dish room this year!
