W H A T
This past January, we had our FIRST combined East & West Coast retreat: Gracepoint Winter Gathering! We started off the new year hearing from God’s word together. We also had times of training, praise & worship, hearing from a guest speaker, etc. It was a “tribal time” being with our friends from across the nation. It took place during the MLK weekend, and was a time everyone didn’t want to miss!
We started off 2018 hearing from God’s word, and it was a time to refocus, be refreshed, challenged and inspired!

Prayer & Praise
When God’s people gather together, it’s an opportunity to passionately worship God with some good music, songs of praise & fervent prayer. We had exactly that in times of prayer & praise throughout the weekend!
