Juneau Men's Retreat 2017

Ways you can pray for the Men's WORD Retreat:

  • Please pray for strength and health for the team members
  • Please pray for the retreatants – for those who are supposed to be at the retreat this year, that nothing can stand in the way of them attending the retreat and that they each allow themselves to see, hear and feel our Lord this weekend.

From Rich Mattson:

Brothers in Christ, 

As men who have participated in previous local men's WORD retreats, we know the power of God's love that unite us together in community at these special gatherings.  This year the retreat will be held the last weekend of April, starting Thursday Evening, April 27th going through Sunday, morning, April 30th.  We invite you to join use again in several ways as the Lord might lead you-- to participate again as a retreatant (even though you know how it unfolds alread-- but every retreat is unique in the way the Lord works), to provide service to retreatants and team through Out-Team support, or just to help us spread the word to invite others as retreatants-- family members, friends, co-workers, acquaintances- whomever the Lord might lay on your heart who would might be blessed by it. [Look for] this year's registration brochure that you can download and print to give to potential retreatants.  The retreat fee is $150 for the session, but scholarships are available  for those needing financial assistance.  The borchure lists contact phone numbers that the retreatants can call to arrange for turning in the registration form and fee.


Warm regards,


Rich Mattson

Out - Team Support

Out-Team Support is a vital component of the WORD Retreats.  These retreats simply would not happen without the faithful service of people who are "outside" the retreat.  These are the folks who assist with sign-off, the send-off service, cooking meals and other activities at the camp.  Your help is greatly appreciated.
