After we’re done serving and eating, we’ll be heading to Urban Air Adventure Park to celebrate what God has done through our service!

Men's Getaway Weekend

Friday, May 18th // 4:30pm  Sunday May 20th //  12:00noon

Registration opens this weekend for our MoMENtum Men's Getaway Weekend to be held at beautiful Seven Springs Mountain Resort on Friday, May 18 through Sunday, May 20, 2018.  By God’s grace and guys taking the risk to invest in a weekend away, last Fall’s Men's Getaway Weekend was so impactful, the guys who attended wanted way more once they returned home! Thus, MoMENtum, Grace’s new men’s ministry, was launched.

So  join us as we continue the MoMENtum, with speakers, interactive breakout sessions, and intentional free time to connect or to be still…all geared towards building authentic and transparent relationships. Enjoy the same Grace culture you have come to truly appreciate being cultivated during this weekend away. This is the spirit and heart of how we do what we do! There will also be plenty of time to enjoy the Seven Springs Resort, be it a round of golf (more if you arrive early or stay late), participating in any of the other exciting activities the resort offers (additional costs apply) or just chilling in the mountains, take this valuable and fun step to meet other guys and begin to develop or deepen relationships. You too can take the step like the guys did last year, and see how God meets YOU where YOU are!

“…It was excellent. Much needed for me. I would clearly invite others to participate and build trusting relationships with each other.” Craig W.

REGISTER HERE by Monday, March 26th to receive EARLY BIRD discounted rates.  Registration closes on April 18th.
