Creation Celebration & Preservation

October 20 - 22, 2017

Come, join us, and Play, Ponder, & Grow . . . .

This weekend aims for individuals, families, and groups to be deeply immersed in creation: celebrating its goodness, exploring its bounty, and engaging in thoughtful discussions of the ways God calls us to preserve this world of wonders. 

Starting with dinner on Friday,
our guests will have opportunity to: - meet others seeking to faithful stewards of creation,
- be inspired by multi-sensory worship, hike and paddle around Camp Fowler,
- create together carving pumpkins, - learn from and interact with impassioned presenters on various aspects of earth-keeping,
- share our confounding questions and creation care practices,
- stargaze in the glorious night sky, - and sing and pray around campfires. 

The retreat ends Sunday morning with a "Worship in the Wild" service at Fowler. 

Come and join us on this stirring journey and great work! 

Lodging will be in Chi Rho House, Prayer Cabins, and Pine & Troost Lodge.

*All lodging is based upon availability and assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
