The ABA presents the 2020 Men’s Retreat

"Friends in the Company of Jesus"
Because faith is no “do-it-yourself” project!

Faith is no do-it-yourself project. Learning to live faithfully requires the consistent presence, perspective, and guidance of others. Friendship with God and with others are essentials on the journey. Amidst our busy and demanding lives, where might the Spirit be inviting us to a deeper relational life with God and others? Join other men of the Alberta Baptist Association (ABA) March 2020 as we engage in this conversation during a weekend of refreshment, relaxation, and encouragement.

The ABA Men’s retreat is designed to be one of down-time, rest, fun and connection. Opportunities are offered for men to connect with God and one another, to grow in friendship as well as in their relationship with Jesus. Camp Caroline  sits in the beautiful foothills of Alberta and has an inviting facility with an indoor pool, hot-tub,  full size gym and great sitting areas. You won’t be disappointed investing in this weekend away.
