Camp Dates 2015 are set and forms are ready!!

Dates are set for All Y’all

Yes, you’re invited to All Y’all Retreat. So’s she. Him, too. This will be our fourth year for the retreat. Some folks come in groups from churches; some come with their families; some come solo; some come with friends from other denominations or with friends with no church home at all. Everyone’s invited. All means all, y’all.

All Y’all Retreat is programming-light. Over our time together at Kum-Ba-Ya, we’ll explore through study and practice Jesus as friend, teacher, healer and savior. But the weekend mostly takes its own shape and tone over the course of the time we are together, depending on the personalities who happen to be gathered. There’s down time, and there’s up time; there are loud moments and quiet moments.

Bring your tetherball shoes. Bring your kayaks. Bring your craft projects, your board games, your jigsaw puzzles, your musical instruments, your cameras, your marshmallow skewers…whatever fun to share. We will pitch in where we want, can and are needed on cooking, cleaning and leading activities. It’s a lot of fun, and its always exciting to see what God does with us and our time together.

If you want a t-shirt, please complete form and mail by September 10. T-shirts are $10 each.

Leaders will be Mark and Maria Lee, Madisonville FCC. We are excited for you to join them at All Y’all Retreat 2015.
