FORGED – Men’s Retreat

“For our God is a consuming fire.” Hebrews 12:29

Forging metal can produce a piece that is stronger than an equivalent cast or machined part. As the metal is shaped during the forging process, it’s internal grain texture deforms to follow the general shape of the part. As a result, the texture variation is continuous throughout the part, giving rise to a piece with improved strength characteristics.

Our God is a consuming fire that transforms us internally to become what He needs us to be, to do the work He has called us to. We are forged for every good work!

All men *18+ – Join the men of Hilltop for a time of encouragement, renewal, and refreshment.
