Peter 5:10-11 (New International Version)
“And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.”
The verse where the conference is based mentions about temporary suffering. More often than not, our sufferings are affected largely by the emotions that we feel caused by various external factors. Through this workshop, we seek to guide SFCs in recognizing and managing their pains and emotions so that through this they can glorify God and help other people. In this workshop, SFCs will see that the suffering we feel at the moment is nothing compared to the glory that God has prepared for us. It will lead us to the way to eternal glory in heaven.
Full of Grace
(sensing and Appreciating the Holy Spirit)
As Christians, we have the privilege of having the Holy Spirit`s presence in our lives. But first, we must understand that after Jesus’ time here on earth, the Holy Spirit continued the work of guiding and empowering God’s people. The more we know about the Holy Spirit; His role in assisting the Church, and His role in our personal lives, the greater we will see His manifestations both in our individual and community life.
The Fight of your Life
Today we see many threats against the culture of life, many of which are a result of our lack of knowledge of the purpose and meaning of life as God intended it. As God’s children made in His image and likeness and called to share in His life, given a dignity shared by no other creature on earth, it must be our mission to protect life against the violations posed by the world. As an SFC, Stand up for LIFE.

Grace for the Moment
(retreat in daily life)
Aside from taking concentrated amount of time out of your schedule to make a retreat, a Retreat in Daily Life encourages you to incorporate prayer into your busy schedule. The purpose of such a retreat is to develop a habit and discipline of “finding God in all things” in the context of your daily routines, relationships, and activities.
Vessels of Grace
By educating children of the poor, We can help families break the cycle of poverty and give those families a future. This is a workshop on ANCOP program and on how SFCs can bring hope to our poor brethren by being vessels of a bright future to the young through education program. Education is a heritage. We must make sure they remain a legacy for future generations.
Falling out of Grace
Sin is a dynamic, dangerous force that is somewhat like a disease or addiction that works to unravel the human person, making him a slave of sin and alienating him from his ultimate end. In order to overcome the loss of life because of sin, it is essential to recover a proper understanding of the nature of sin itself.
