Christian Reconciliation Fellowship, the GCI church in Greensboro, North Carolina recently celebrated its 50th anniversary with a day-long retreat at a nearby state park.
The day began with a breakfast buffet followed by a Lectio Divina (meditative Scripture reading) session. After a break for refreshments, the group shared a worship service with Pastor Hillary Irusta (pictured at left) leading inspiring and reflective worship in song and prayer. Her father, Pastor Joel Irusta, then gave a short summary of the congregation’s history, while focusing on its vision for the future. After a photo session the group (pictured below) enjoyed a buffet lunch. The remainder of the afternoon was spent in hiking, games and just talking together.
