BREAKOUT CONFERENCES: Women’s Retreat 2018


1 Corinthians 3:9-11 (NLT) For we are God’s workers and you are God’s field. You are God’s building. Because of God’s grace to me, I have laid the foundation like an expert builder. Now others are building on it. But whoever is building on this foundation must be very careful. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one we already have—Jesus Christ.
