Spring Outdoor Ministry Retreats

Staff_Graff, Chuck

Greetings, Campers!

I know you are ready for spring, so load up your camping gear and join us at one of our fantastic state parks! We will share a weekend retreat of renewal, worship and fellowship.  These intergenerational retreats are for everyone.  Activities include worship around the campfire (and s’mores, of course), hiking, outdoor games, fishing, canoeing and kayaking.  There will be plenty of opportunities for solitude, reading a good book and stargazing.  We look forward to experiencing “God’s other great sanctuary” with you!
