Retreat for East Coast Conference Ministerium

NOVEMBER 11-14, 2018

Registration deadline - Monday, November 5, 2018
 

East Coast Covenant Clergy and Spouses are invited to reconnect, rest, and renew at the 2018 Ministers' Retreat.  Step back from ministry and allow yourself to be ministered to by God's presence, by your brothers and sisters in the Lord, by time alone, by our speaker, and by the beauty of God's creation surrounding us at Pilgrim Pines.  We look forward to seeing you soon and welcoming you to our retreat.  God's blessings and peace be with you.  - The 2018 Ashram Committee

Childcare will be provided during morning and evening worship and sessions Monday through Wednesday.  Please list the names and ages of all your children who will need care as well as any additional information (allergies, medical info, etc).
