On March 9-11th, the Chicagoland churches of the Thrive Network will be coming together for our annual ReFocus weekend. This is a time in which we unplug from the busy distractions of our daily life and intentionally seek to refocus our eyes on Christ and the things which are eternal. We are very excited to have Dr. Ron Walborn join us and we are anticipating a memorable weekend in which God moves in powerful ways. The theme for this year is “Awaken to the Spirit.” Dr. Walborn will help us see how real and present the Holy Spirit is in the lives of God’s people. Please read further below for details regarding childcare and logistics.
