A reminder to set aside a few days to join us for our first annual spiritual retreat in Ottawa, which will coincide with our annual general meeting. On Friday, November 11th, there will be an MCF prayer breakfast at 7:00 am at the National House of Prayer, 17 Myrand Ave, Ottawa, ON. K1N 5N7, which will be followed by attendance at the National Remembrance Day Ceremony in downtown Ottawa. Lunch is available at the Chateau Laurier, or at various Messes in Ottawa. For information on these, please contact the MCF office.
In the afternoon, beginning at 1:30 pm, at Greenbelt Church, 839 Shefford Rd Ottawa, we will spend time reflecting upon Jesus’ call to us to make disciples. The session will start with a tutorial on disciple-making and then continue with individual prayer and meditation on the Scriptures. We will then come together again to share what the Lord has been communicating to us individually. We will close the day at approximately 5:30 pm.
On Saturday, November 12th, a small change in the schedule, we will recommence at 9:00 am with prayer and worship. Snack and coffee will be served and in our second session we will consider the concept of discipleship. Following a similar agenda to the previous afternoon, we anticipate ending the session at 12:00 and then share lunch together, which will be provided. The annual general meeting will commence at 1:00 pm.
Please reply to this email if the Spirit leads you to join us in Ottawa. As we get closer to the weekend of the spiritual retreat, more details will be forth coming.
Life is busy, there are many demands to which we must respond. God knows this and He gives us strength to endure, but He also instructs us to stop, listen, and pray. Take time to be still and know that He is God. I invite you to come and stop together on the 1st annual MCF spiritual retreat.
