For a few days each summer our family retreat offers a great time for Christian families to relax together in a beautiful secluded setting. Midway’s Family Retreat features two hours daily of Bible study and discussion along with games and free time activities. At night, we assemble for a period of singing and worship in the open air pavillion.
Midway’s Family Retreat is held at Creekside Christian Camp in Childersburg, AL. The cabins are air-conditioned to keep you comfortable at night. Some families elect to bring their own tent or camper. Cost for the camp is $60 per person to stay in the cabins and $30 per person if you choose to stay in your own tent. This helps to cover the cost of renting the campground and the cost of the food and other supplies. Be sure to ask someone who has been to find out just how much fun Family Retreat really is!
This weekend, July 12th through 15th, is finally time for our Summer Connect Retreat! This year, we are doing something a little different by combining our summer retreat with Midway’s annual family retreat. Even though we have several awesome events all throughout the year, family retreat weekend is somewhere at the top of my list, and I can’t wait for all of our teens to have the opportunity to experience this incredible weekend! So, what will we be doing during this weekend? We’re glad you asked! Each day will be filled with games and activities, devotionals & lessons, lots of fellowshipping with some cool adults and even cooler kids, awesome meals, and an enjoyable amount of free time (with a few surprises mixed in). George Banks, our “Game Master” for the event, has some awesome plans in the works during our time together — this is going to be a weekend you don’t wanna miss! The bus will be heading out on Thursday evening, July 12th, and will return the following Sunday afternoon. The cost for the Retreat is $60 — which covers your housing (in an air conditioned cabin!), all of your meals, transportation, and you housing. We will be discussing our itinerary and all info for this event in class on July 8th, so any additional questions you may have can be directed to Cole or myself. We cannot wait for this weekend to begin, and we look forward to sharing this time with you as we grow closer to our God and our church family!
