GOYA Saturday of Lazarus Retreat

1:00pm-3:00pm on Saturday April 4th, 2015

“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And
whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe?” – John 11:25-26
This years GOYA Saturday of Lazarus Retreat will be one of the most interactive! We will be playing
a life-size version of the Game of Life, or rather the Orthodox Game of Life. As we know: We are
born. We live. We die. But within our lives, we have important decisions to make. Do we just want to
live to die? Or do we want to live to never die? That decision is up to us!
