Our All-Church Retreat is a weekend of fun, fellowship, and reflection. The retreat takes place at Moon Beach Camp which is in St. Germain just west of Eagle River and is part of the Outdoor Ministry program of the United Church of Christ. It sits on the shores of Moon Lake and Little Saint Germain Lake. Cabins overlook Moon Lake, and each is furnished, heated, and has a bathroom with a shower. There is a beautiful lodge, and the camp is fully staffed with helpful people.
People arrive Friday evening, partaking of snacks and fellowship time around the lodge fireplace. We are treated to three meals on Saturday and brunch on Sunday. On Saturday morning, adults are invited to interactive learning. This year’s retreat leader is Andrew Warner who is a Generosity Outreach Officer for the UCC. Camp staff will once again offer a program for our children Saturday morning at the same time as the adult session.
Afternoons and evenings are up to you. There will be activities, planned and impromptu. There is a beach with watercraft, hiking trails and places to sit, read and reflect. Evening is game time with ice cream sundaes and a bonfire.
Sunday, we enjoy brunch and worship informally. We are usually on our way by 11 o’clock.
Cost for the retreat is $165 per adult and $25 per child. Financial aid is available (talk to Pastor Bridget). You can sign up to attend the retreat by clicking here, by contacting the church office, or by filling out a form at Union Central.
