This year’s Fall Retreat was held at Drift Creek Camp located in the coastal mountains outside of Lincoln City. The camp “provides a vibrant setting among ancient spruce & hemlocks. Guests can renew mind, body, and spirit with access to miles of forest trails and the refreshing sounds of a cleansing stream.” www.driftcreek.org
This year’s Theme was:
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.” [Proverbs 3:5-6]
Retreat was a time to get away from the distractions and busyness of daily living and spend time enjoying God’s creation and fellowship with others. There was plenty of free time, as well as time set aside for worship and focusing on the theme for the weekend.
Activities included a silent auction, board games, ping pong, a camp fire on Saturday night, sitting and relaxing, going for a walk in the woods or along the stream, reading, Sunday morning worship, and of course enjoying the delicious meals prepared by the camp.
