November Retreat!

mdretreat

Need a break???
We will be hosting a contemplative retreat at Mt. Hermon this fall along with Missio Dei and Bayshore Church that kicks off Friday with a  kayaking and sailing dock party as a pre-retreat adventure.
The retreat will be help at Mt. Hermon and all the info is here.

Pricing is looking like this:
Kids 0-3: Free
Kids 4-17: $40
Adults: $166
Couples: $235

That includes accommodations and meals from dinner Friday to breakfast Sunday, plus programming. That’s slightly more than I mentioned last week. It’s still subsidized a bit for most. If that’s out of your price range feel free to use the prices I sent before. We don’t want cost to be a reason for anyone missing out on what should be a great weekend, so if it is a problem and you want to attend, please don’t hesitate to email us and we will make it work.
