Young Adult Retreat 2019

This year we will be heading out as a young adults group to the Crowsnest Pass to enjoy God’s creation, fellowship together, have some time to relax, and all in all grow closer together as we grow closer to God.
We are going to be continuing our study "In Focus" by keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, learning about Him and having some intentional times of worship together in community. We will dive deep into the word of God and prepare and cultivate a space for our hearts to reach out and listen to His Spirit.
We are really looking forward to this weekend retreat. It is always one of the highlights of the year for REACH at UDAC. We are so excited for the opportunity we have to spend time together in a setting that brings us away from the busyness and distractions of life. We also eagerly await God’s hand to work in wonderful ways both in this retreat and through the continuing year of REACH ministries.

We hope to see you there! Please do not let finances be the reason you don’t come. If you need some assistance, don’t be afraid to let Justine know!

Movie Event: The Case for Christ

Movie Event: The Case for Christ

In 1980, Lee Strobel’s award-winning investigative reporting earned him a promotion to legal editor at the Chicago Tribune. Things at home weren’t going nearly as well. His wife Leslie’s newfound faith in Christ compelled Lee to utilize his journalistic and legal training to disprove the claims of Christianity—pitting his resolute atheism against her growing faith. Based on Strobel’s best-selling book of the same name, THE CASE FOR CHRIST movie is a dramatic and heartfelt telling of their compelling journey. Invite your friends, family and neighbors for this free event. Popcorn will be provided and other treats will be available for a nominal fee. Invitations are available at the Information desk in the lobby.

Please sign up at the information desk so we can plan for food.
