What do movies have to do with faith? Find out at the annual Congregational Retreat this fall when retreat leader Dr. Rebecca Davis makes use of movie clips to help us gain insights into who we are in relation to God.
The retreat, September 29-October 1, will offer us the opportunity to ponder our way to greater understanding of God and ourselves…and hopefully into more faithful living…by using movies as windows to a deeper understanding of God.
Weekend highlights include:
S’mores on Friday night
Interactive, intergenerational program for youth and adults Saturday morning
Program-oriented childcare for children through grade five
A variety of recreational activities and free time Saturday afternoon
Barbecue dinner and homemade desserts, followed by an open mic Saturday night
Casual worship with communion Sunday morning
Young and not-so-young, married and single, long-time members and new alike—all are invited to be part of making our annual Congregational Retreat at Montreat a memorable weekend.
