2018 New Life Retreat

July 6 @ 7:00 pm - July 7 @ 2:00 pm

Sabbath Together

Join us as we take time to put the Sabbath into practice together as an extended family.  We’ll take time to connect with each other, encourage each other, and rest our souls.

We will be meeting at Camp Tuk-A-Way again this year for an overnight retreat.  There is plenty of space for tent camping and cabin camping.

Our plan is to allow space for us to connect with God and with each other.  We’ll start off Friday evening with a bonfire, some singing, and just relaxing together.  Saturday, we’ll start the day off right with a big breakfast followed by a devotional to start the day.  Once we’ve cleaned up from breakfast, we’ll have some structured personal reflection times.  Then, we’ll gather back together for some fun in the sun.  We’ll take time to enjoy the pool, have water play for the younger kids, play some outside games, or relax in the swings in the shade.  Then, we’ll gather back inside for lunch together, followed by a time of prayer together.  Then, we’ll have more time to explore the camp and enjoy the company of one another. The whole point of this time throughout Friday and Saturday is to set apart a time and space for us to rest, relax, and connect.

We will have childcare provided for parts of the time, but this is meant to be a time when we relax together as the family of New Life, which certainly includes the children in our community.  For most of our time, we will all be together.

$20/adult if staying both Friday and Saturday
$15/adult if staying just one day
$15/ child/youth
