This year about 60-70 people attended our congregation’s annual family retreat. This is a great place to build relationships that serve as the foundation to our life together in Christ.
A Growing Congregation
During the evening program on the first night of the retreat there were 60 of us present (more showed up the next day). Our pastor, Jana’s brother, asked people to raise their hands if they were attending our church ten years ago. Nine people raised their hands. That means 51 of us are new to the congregation in the last ten years.
Some people, like us, have moved to Banský Bsytrica in the last ten years. But many of the new families have come as a result of the school. Some have moved to teach at Narnia, some have heard of our church because of Narnia, and some have become believers through the ministry of the school. It’s great to be a part of a ministry that is dynamic and growing.
The gallery below contains our Spring 2015 photos. Near the end you’ll find a series of photos from the retreat.
