Stay-Treat: 5 Mysteries in John's Gospel

John’s Gospel gives us titles for Jesus found nowhere else. These simple words contain ocean depths of meaning. They are mysteries made known. Secrets that are open. Easily understood on one level, intriguing for a lifetime of exploration at deeper levels. There’s great stuff in John that we can’t get to in the Sunday messages.
So we’re hosting a stay-treat; time set apart for focused study, worship and fellowship where you still get to sleep in your own bed! Friday night includes delicious dinner, presentations and wonderful dessert. Saturday morning includes a light breakfast and three exciting presentations. There’s even a kids track!
The five mysteries include The Word, The Footwasher, The Vine, The Helper and the Triune Gift. 
Cost to Attend:
Through January 24: $10/person or $20/family
After January 24: $20/person or $30/family
