15-Minute POWER Lessons + Brotherly Fellowship + Lunch
This event is designed especially for men in the Lord’s church throughout South Florida, and we hope that you will come. It will begin at 10:00 a.m. and will be finished around 12:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided by the church at the end of the sessions. There will be five 15-minute POWER lessons from five South Florida preachers. Along with some great singing and uplifting brotherly fellowship, we believe that you will leave recharged (and powered up!) for greater Christian service in the Lord’s kingdom.

Statewide College & Young Adult Retreat 2019
At Cocoa Beach Fall Statewide College Retreat 2018 we discussed our theme in helping our college students and young adults dive even deeper in “Understanding God’s Will for All Aspects of our Lives” - how we can live freely and joyfully knowing God’s plan and purpose for our lives and how to share that purpose driven life with others. This time for St. Pete Beach retreat we will be doing “Generations: How Our Decisions To Live For Christ Now Will Affect Generations to Come…" And questions will be discussed at small group discussion time immediately following each speaker.
