Summer Retreats

What is spiritual friendship? Are Christians called to pursue friendship with one another in a way that is different from the broader culture? How do God’s Word and the common bond of faith in Christ inform our approach to friendship? Throughout these weekends we will study the Bible’s teaching on friendship. We will also discuss the blessings and challenges that come from this pursuit, and practical insights into building spiritual friendships. Join us as we worship, rest, and spend quality time with other men or women of the Citylight community. It is a time bound to be both memorable and fun!
