Camping Retreat Weekend

This year a greatly reduced contingent of us will head off to Pere Marquette State Park for our annual camping retreat.

It is a fantastic weekend of long hikes up to the dining hall in beautiful setting.

A fabulous morning of apple picking followed by a long lazy day of games, cards, tag and general lounging.

Capped off by an outdoor service by the campfire around a cross made from natural materials. Each year we do some sort of craft project that ends up a part of the church. The cross in this picture has become a part of our Easter services.

I am looking forward to this annual event. It is a wonderful time to connect with my church family, to celebrate the great outdoors and to relax and have a wonderful time. I'll see you all back here on Monday.
