In the past few weeks, various churches of Olivet Assembly Unites States (OA USA) have held various retreats by region, in specific, the Pacific Coast, Southeast, and Southwest regions.
As it is now the period of Lent, the regions focused mainly on studying the messages of the path of the cross and the suffering of Christ.
“not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”– Hebrews 10:25
The author of Hebrews exhorts in this letter to not give up meeting together and to encourage one another in the Lord. Through these retreats members and newcomers in these regions were able to gather together, meditate on the Word of God, and share the grace with each other, thus strengthening their faith.
