The 2017 Northeast Easter Retreat gathering concluded on April 16th in Dover, New York. The closing service and Easter Sunday service was delivered in the Immanuel Chapel on the Olivet University Campus. Members from New York City, Montreal, Boston, New Haven, Philadelphia joined members living in Dover for this gathering. At total over 260 people attended the retreat on the final day to give praise to the Lord.
The two-day retreat is filled with abundant grace as the messages reminded attendees of the truth of Jesus' sacrifice, the wonder of his love on the cross and the new life they have received from it. The meaning of cross and his resurrection was greatly pondered upon.
New York Immanuel Church give thanks to God, that through the retreat attendees' hearts can be united and the work of Holy Spirit graciously poured out on people. Many thanks were also offered for the children's programs and Jubilee performances given on Saturday night. Several of those giving the testimonies expressed how this was their 2nd or 3rd time attending and how much they look forward to it each year.
May God bless the Northeast regional churches and continue to guide its mission work throughout the year.
