Menís Retreat at Camp Concordia This past weekend (Oct 2-4), the men of Messiah Lutheran Church in Grand Rapids, MI ( were joined by some of the men from Emmanuel Lutheran in Cadillac, MI on a menís retreat at Camp Concordia ( in Gowen, MI.

We were very blessed by doing the Reel-to-Real: Of Fish and Men study. All the participants enjoyed the study greatly, and it had a perfect format to use in four sessions for our 3 day, 2 night retreat. We had a lot of opportunity for discussion, and we kept going over time for each session because the men were getting so much out of it. Thank you for such a Christ-centered study!

Iíve attached 2 photos:

1) One of our members, Dr. Pete Garchow, blessing our group by frying up a fish dinner (staying with our theme) using fish he and Duane Ambrose had caught this summer.
2) Some of our men watching a session of the video as we sat in OUR lodge at Camp!

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Tom Bartzsch
