Add the XYZ 6th Annual Fall Retreat to your weekend of September 20-22, 2015! Now is the time for you plan for an enjoyable, relaxing time away. We Study, We Worship & We Play.
The tentative theme this year is Faith, Fellowship and Simplicity: Caring for our Community
The retreat will be held at Pine Lake United Methodist Camp just outside of Westfield, WI.
At Pine Lake we hold the retreat at the Bishop Sharon Rader Retreat Center which is a facility very similar to a motel. i.e., this is not roughing it!

Costs for the 2015 Retreat are:
$250 per couple sharing a room.
$125 for a single person sharing a room.
$190 for a single person not sharing a room.
