Christmount Christian Assembly
(Direction to Christmount)

The Date:  April 15-17, 2016

Theme: A Dwelling Place for God: "The Forgotten Story of Creation in the New Testament."  Rev. Dr. Stan Sauders talked about concepts of Heaven and Earth together as creation and why being good stewards of the earth is important in scripture.  It was an amazing program that changed many of our perceptions of the Bible and gave all the attendees a lot to think about.

The Place: Christmount National Retreat Center, in Black Mountain, North Carolina.  The weather was amazing, the mountains beautiful with the wild flowers just beginning to bloom.
