What’s Happening at This Year’s Retreat?


This year’s Retreat — the Fellowship’s thirteenth! — at Pocahontas State Park is getting set to be a great few days of food, fellowship and fun!

We’ll arrive any time after 3pm on Friday, September 26, making our way to the Algonquian Ecology Camp area where we’ll choose our cabins.  There’ll be dinner in the Powhatan Dining Hall lodge, followed by a Nature-themed worship and then time around the campfire.

We’ll get off to a great start on Saturday with a delicious breakfast.  In the morning there’ll be a visioning workshop, a Nature walk, and kayaking, while after lunch there’ll be a number of workshops including cupcake decorating, prayer beads, a book discussion, an outdoor labyrinth, yoga, T-shirt printing, and an introduction to geocaching!  There’s always the park itself to be explored at any time, too!  Before dinner we’ll enjoy Dances of Universal Peace, and the evening will continue with another great worship, time for making music and telling stories, and more s’mores around the fire!

After another nourishing breakfast Sunday morning, we’ll tidy up the lodge, pack up our cabins, and head back home after a wonderful weekend!
