Retreat Scriptures

2 Corinthians 5:17, NKJV
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new cre- ation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.

Isaiah 43:18-19, NIV
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

Special information before you come...

Due to current health and safety guidelines space may be limited. Rooms will have 2-3 guests in each (request roommates you are comfortable with).

CDC and State guidelines will be followed, so please bring a mask, as they are required in certain areas, such as the dining hall.

Also, for the safety and health of our committee and guests, we will ONLY be doing UFO’s (Un- Finished Objects).

For this year only, guests are being asked to bring their own cutting mats, rulers, travel irons (please no full-size irons), and other supplies needed to complete a project. A small ironing table (TV tray size) will also be allowed this year. There will be no communal use of supplies, irons, boards, etc. for guests to use.

There will be a LIVE auction and there will be some very nice items up for bid! (there will not be a donation table, shared snack table, or silent auction)

** For any retreat questions, please call the camp office at 989-883-2501.
