    Fall Retreats for Retired and Semi-retired Adults

     

     

     

    "A Time to Harvest"

    3-day, 2-night retreats for retired and semi-retired adults. 

      There is so much work to be done! We, as Christians, have the responsibility and privilege to be workers throughout our entire lives for the cause of Christ. We must realize that we are called to continually harvest, and He obviously isn't talking about crops. He is talking about continuing to grow His Kingdom. For our 2017 Fall Coastal Adult Retreat, we will dive into what it means to be true harvesters for Christ!

      Our Fall Coastal Adult Retreats are designed to bring your senior adult group a little closer with one another and introduce them to new friends from across the state.

      Inspiring worship services, fun break-out sessions, and delicious meals are just a few of the highlights this retreat is known for.
