    Looking for a way to get to know fellow church members of all ages better?
    Looking for a chance to get away with your family?

    There will be time for hiking, reading, napping, snow-tubing, and exploring Black Mountain on Saturday afternoon. We’ll have a BBQ dinner Saturday evening, followed by square dancing! The retreat will finish with a casual worship service on Sunday morning. Childcare will be available during our program and worship time for children ages four and younger.
