Spiritual Life Retreat 2014

"As One..."

If my people will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.  2 Chronicles 7:14

January typically embodies a season pregnant with personal hopes of recommitment and ambition for the New Year. Some place their hope in the perspective of upward mobility. Others place their efforts towards expanding their influence. For the students and staff of Maranatha High School who participate in the 13th annual Spiritual Life Retreat, “As One” we choose to place our hope in the renewing ministry and power of Christ Jesus through the Holy Spirit.

Through workshops and worship, through snowballs, small groups and spiritual disciplines, “As One” we explore what it means to live lives rooted in humility, repentance, restoration, and the life abundant we have been created for. The prophet Ezra in 2 Chronicles 7:14 provides both a prescriptive and descriptive account of prayers and actions which allow the Spirit to work mightily in and through the lives of believers everywhere to birth…revival!

Join us for an amazing time of renewal, inspiration, and shared commitment over Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, January 18-20. Pastors Brian Holland of Pomona First Baptist, Jesse Oakes of Lake Avenue Church, Justin Cox of Fellowship Monrovia, and James Burke of Foothills Community Church and 300 of your closest friends will all be there! Sign-ups are limited so register now. Cost is $150 which can be placed on school account. Questions, contact Chaplain and Dean of Spiritual Life Joel Murphy at j_murphy@mhs-hs.org or (626) 817-4092
