This church year has been both busy and exciting! Now is the time to “Relax and Retreat” at our 35th annual adult retreat at Kirkridge, October 14-16. This year we are doing something different to reflect the theme – inviting each participant to decide what s/he needs to do in order to “relax and retreat.” Maybe it’s some quiet time in the beautiful lodge; maybe it’s yoga, tai chi or meditation; maybe it’s a hike or walk along the Appalachian trail; maybe it’s making music; maybe it’s games with friends; or maybe it’s a visit to nearby Columcille or the Booknest. The only planned/scheduled activities for the weekend are meals, a Friday night ingathering and a Sunday service; the rest is up to you!
Each registrant will be assigned to a group that will plan, prepare, serve and clean up one meal (shopping stipends will be provided to each group). Working with your meal preparation group before and during the retreat will be part of the fun and fellowship! All overnighters will stay at Nelson Lodge, so space is limited. Saturday day-trippers are welcome! The cost for the weekend is $200 for overnighters and $45 for day-trippers (includes 3 meals). Scholarships are available.
You can reserve your spot now by sending a deposit of $100 per person for overnighters or $30 per person for day-trippers along with a completed 2016 registration form to UUCWC or to Bonnie Ruekgauer (make sure to write “Kirkridge” in the memo section of your check). Your spot will not be reserved without your deposit.
We can’t wait to see you on the mountain!
