Worthy of the Kingdom of God

Summer Retreat:  July 6-8, 2018, East Waterford, Pennsylvania

To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power...  
— 2 Thessalonians 1:11

Worthy of the kingdom of God?  Wait…I thought we are all unworthy of the kingdom!  Yet when we take another look at the Scriptures, we find that all Christians are indeed called to live lives that are worthy of the kingdom.  This is a high calling, and we will need the favor of God and plenty of encouragement to sustain that to the end.  We invite all those who are striving to follow the simple but challenging kingdom path to join us once again for a weekend of prayer, singing, worship, Bible teaching and rich fellowship.
