The retreat includes time for fun: zip lining, paintball, climbing wall, horseback riding, trap shooting, canoeing, basketball, and more – along with time to get to know other guys from Christ The Rock. Meals will include a prime rib dinner on Saturday night, and options to enjoy an outdoor breakfast in the Nicolet National Forest.

E100: Love His Story | Be part of a small group

As we begin the second half of our E100: Love His Story Bible reading plan, you are invited to be part of a small group to discuss the readings. A huge part of growing in your love and understanding of the Bible is being able to talk about it with others who are interested in growing too. If you’d like to be part of a small group to discuss the reading and Sunday messages, you can email Pastor Joe to find a group that’s a good fit for you. E100 Reading Plans are available at the Welcome Desk.
