The Armor of God
Putting on the Full Armor of God: Why Men Need to be Aware of the Battle and Prepare for it.
In our world today, full of bitterness and anger, it’s not hard to imagine ourselves in the midst of a war. But as much as we battle each other over cultural and political differences, there is a greater war being waged – a spiritual battle, of which we often are unaware and ill-suited to fight.
The bad news is that in our flawed humanity, we are unfit to fight the battle ourselves. The good news is that God can equip you with the tools for battle and in him there is victory.
At our men’s retreat this year, Brian Harpell will speak openly and truthfully about the battle being waged and together we will suit up with the right tools to achieve victory over our enemy.
Speaker: Brian Harpell
BRIAN HARPELL has served in pastoral ministry for 42 years – the last 30 of which, he has been the lead pastor at the First Baptist Church of Everett, Washington. His doctoral degree is from Ashland Theological Seminary in Ashland, Ohio where his dissertation was Employing Spiritual Gifts for Church Growth. Brian has a passion for empowering others to serve according to their gifting and passion. His 15 trips to Cuba to speak at leadership conferences and at the seminary resulted in a leadership book, Leading Your Congregation Toward God’s Vision, presently being used as part of the pastoral curriculum at the Baptist Seminary in Santiago de Cuba.
He and his wife, Lynne have been happily married for 42 years. They have two married children and two grandchildren. For 16 years, Brian has been chaplain to the Everett Silvertips ice hockey team, and he continues to play ice hockey twice a week. He actually says that ice hockey prepared him for being a pastor.

2018 Women’s Retreat
A Diet of Hope
Taste and see that the Lord is good. Oh, the joys of those who take refuge in him. Psalm 34:8 NLT Psalm 34:8 NLT. A Diet of Hope looks at how we spiritually nourish ourselves. In the hustle and bustle of daily life we can fall into the pattern of just making it through each day while we are spiritually starving ourselves.
Over the weekend we will take a look at what is on our plates and how can we find ways to stay spiritually nourished while still accomplishing our daily responsibilities.
Speaker: Kim Chaffin
Kim is a wife of twenty-eight years, a mother of two and an EWU graduate. She loves to share her love for the Lord at women’s events and she is the author of Simply Blessed a newly released 31-day devotional. Simply Blessed contains thirty-one heartfelt devotional stories for the woman seeking to know God for who He is: a loving God who longs to have a relationship with her. Kim focuses on the foundation of a woman’s faith; tackling issues she faces on a daily basis and providing joyful and practical lessons for a woman’s heart. She is also a contributor for Living Better 50 magazine and the Whatever Girls Ministry.
Registration begins on Friday the 20th at 5:00PM and the retreat ends at 11:00 AM on Sunday.
Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see how good God is. Blessed are those who run to him. Worship God if you want the best: Worship the opens door to all His goodness. Psalm 34:8 MSG
