CUMC Annual Retreat 2019: Exploring God’s Creation

Connecting with each other and remembering we are Children of God.

Join Us: Friday, March 1, 7:00 p.m. – Sunday, March 3, 11:00 a.m.

It’s not too late to sign up for your wonder-full experience at the CUMC Annual Retreat, March 1-3, in Aptos at Monte Toyon Retreat Center. We’ll be using Psalm 104 as our guide for the weekend. The beginning of it goes like this:

“God, my God, how great you are! Beautifully, gloriously robed, dressed up in sunshine, and all heaven stretched out for your tent. You built your palace on the ocean deeps, made a chariot out of clouds and took off on wind-wings.”

The main program part of the retreat happens Saturday morning, 9:30-11:30, and afternoon, 3:30-5:30. During that time we’ll be delving into the glories of God’s amazing world, through word, contemplation, music, and action. You’ll have plenty of free time to enjoy the redwood forest, knit by the fireplace, tell stories around the campfire, and all the other fun activities there. Come join the fun, for the weekend or for the day.

You are welcome and encouraged to come. There are scholarships for any and all who could use the financial help. Don’t let the cost stop you. Carpools are forming for those coming on Saturday only. The price for Saturday only, 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. is $57.00/adult and $35.00/child (6-17). That includes two meals, use of the camp, and activities all day of your choosing. The price for two nights, 5 meals, and camp and activities is $150/adult, $100/child (6-17), family of 3 or more $350, and for children under 6 there is no charge.

Come on down to connect with others, to celebrate God’s creation, and to become again a child of God.
