PARISH RETREAT 2017

HIGHLAND LAKES CAMP
| SPICEWOOD, TX
| FRIDAY-SUNDAY: OCTOBER 20-22

What’s the program?

Above all, the program is that you have a unique time to draw closer to God and the family of Christ Church. During a few organized times we will explore together what “Love Where We Live” really means and how we live a life that is deeply rooted in where God has us. Begining with a meal on Friday evening the retreat is a relaxed rhythm of free time to be with friends and family, structured gatherings for learning together and a really special time of worship on Sunday morning. A schedule will be published as we get closer, so keep your eyes peeled.

This year’s Parish Retreat will be hosted by Highland Lakes Camp in Spicewood, TX, which is about 45 minutes west of Austin. There are fields for football, soccer and softball, and courts for basketball, volleyball and tennis. Please see the map below.
For the lodge rooms, sheets and towels are provided for adults – bring extra for kids. Those in dorms should bring twin size bedding for bunks plus a pillow and towel. Also, bring your Bible, flashlight, sunscreen, insect repellent, swimming suit, travel mug and water bottle. Warmer clothing and rain gear may also be appropriate. We will be taking up our weekly offering on Sunday, so please remember to bring it with you.
