WHEN: May 24-27 (Fri - Mon)
WHERE: Kenbrook Bible Camp in Lebanon, PA
Adult Speaker: Rev. Mike Gerhardt
Youth Speaker: Rev. Peter Lee
Our CCCS church-wide summer retreat will be held at Kenbrook Bible Camp. This year, the theme of our church is "All for One and One for All" and we will be focusing on how we can grow to be united in the gospel as one church despite our cultural and language differences! Children's Track is available for ALL sessions!
Registration begins March 24th and the basic fee will be $50. There is no requirement to pay any more than the basic fee. The remaining actual cost (or any amount you choose to give) can be paid as a *free will offering. Any amount given beyond the cost listed in the registration forms will be considered a tax-deductible donation. The rates of actual cost are listed in the registration form.
UPDATE (April 14): Registration has officially closed! See you all at the retreat!
*We have come up with this policy so that those of us who cannot afford the full cost of the retreat do not have to feel burdened to pay it. We simply ask that you pay what you can. However, if you are financially able, we encourage you to pay the full amount and if willing, to offer even more to help cover the costs of others. We want to give every opportunity for everyone to attend this retreat to experience God's presence and Word.
