Winter Retreat


The following information is for our 2024 retreat, which has already happened. We’ll see you again next year!

Best “Buts” in Scripture (2024 Retreat)

Throughout the Bible, God places a few well timed “buts” where the bad news about what we have done shifts to the “but…” good news of what God is doing in rescuing us. Come join us for LDI’s Winter Retreat as we learn about the “best buts” in Scripture and how these “buts” play a role in our relationship with God. There will be five to six short talks on different passages along with small group discussion. Throughout the weekend there will also be time for outdoor winter activities, games, and downtown time with fellow Hopesters.
