We should be finished and heading for home at about 5:00 pm on Saturday. We welcome you bringing your confirmation age students to this retreat. The cost of the retreat is $37.00 for students and $20.00 for adults. A chaperone must
accompany each church delegation. Registration deadline is March 31. Please register early as space is limited to 40 people. The Informational Poster and Registration/Permission Slip can be downloaded by clicking on the links for each item.
It is time to begin thinking about ordering the 2015 Mission Yearbook for Prayer and Study. There has been a tremendous price increase for this year. Because we use a bulk rate for all of our churches combined, the final cost will not be determined until after the requests for orders are in. You may download the order form here.
