The theme this year is: “The Holy Spirit, Our Day to Day Guide”
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!

$250 per couple sharing a room.
$125 for a single person sharing a room.
$190 for a single person not sharing a room.  
Registration deadline for the retreat is Friday, August 29, 2014.
Registration Forms are available at the Hospitality Center as of this Sunday. It requires a $25 per person deposit.
Please take completed registration form and deposit to the church office during normal office hours.
