January 9-11, the Redeemer Ministry Corps volunteers participated in their mid-year retreat in Sea Isle City, NJ. The theme of this year’s retreat was “Comforted by God.” The volunteers spent the weekend reflecting on the experiences of the first half of the year, preparing themselves for the second half and praying about the many ways in which God provides for us.
“Speak a word of comfort in my prayer, Lord, and help me hear and trust it. And taking it to heart, let me speak a word of comfort to all I know and all I meet today and through the week ahead….”
– from The Concord Pastor blog
Despite the cold weather, it was a beautiful weekend of reflection, prayer and sharing. May Kelly, Anna, Sara and Mary Clare continue to be comforted by God in their second half of the service year!
