It’s time to register for the 2017 Intergenerational Retreat! This year’s retreat will be May 26-28, at Tower Hill Camp in Sawyer, Michigan. Our theme will be God Feeds Our Souls, so get ready for lots of fun and enriching experiences built around the theme of how God sustains us and gives us what we need every day. Everyone of all ages is invited to attend!
For those who have never been to Tower Hill, it is a beautiful retreat site a little more than an hour from Chicago. It has comfortable lodging with plenty of bathrooms (so no camping is involved!), and the food is prepared fresh daily. It is walking distance to the beach or a short drive into New Buffalo and other surrounding towns during the free time portion of the weekend. Activities begin around 8 p.m. Friday and wrap up by about 11 a.m. Sunday.
There are a few important things to know:
In order to give Tower Hill an accurate head count before the deadline, Sunday, February all registrations must be completed by Sunday, February 12. You can register at the office or after church, with a $50 deposit to guarantee your spot. This deadline is firm because we have to release any unused space to Tower Hill at that time.
The cost of the retreat is $125 per person, which includes 3 meals Saturday and Sunday breakfast. There is a subsidized maximum family cost of $325. PLEASE NOTE: Due to the need to conserve retreat funds, the family cap will apply only to family members who live in the same household. If you require additional financial assistance, please see Pastor Peggy to discuss other available options. The goal is for everyone who wants to go on the retreat to be able to go!
The Intergenerational Retreat Committee is looking for more people to join us to help plan the weekend’s events. It is not a big time commitment—we meet once every month or so leading up the retreat. If you are interested, please stop by the registration table or let the office know.
Please consider “feeding your soul” by joining your church family for a weekend of faith, fellowship, fun & food!
