Join us for our annual congregational retreat, which will be held on our church campus here in Durham. Our retreat speaker is Dr. James Banks, pastor of Peace Church and author of several books on prayer. He will be speaking to us about our living and loving communication with Jesus. How do we walk with Jesus in prayer? Why does praying together matter? How do we pray God's Word?

We will have ministry and fun for all ages, including childcare for our youngest children, as well as a program and two bouncy houses for our elementary age kids.  Middle and high school youth can look forward to their own special program, including a Saturday afternoon pool party. 

Our retreat kicks off with a taco supper on Friday night at 6:30pm, Aug. 23rd, followed by our first session with Dr. Banks.  We will
provide Saturday breakfast and lunch, with a full morning of ministry and activities.  Then, Saturday afternoon, our time for fun and fellowship begins, including the youth pool party, bouncy houses, as well as games and activities for everyone.  We will have a delicious BBQ supper, and close our retreat with a Saturday evening program.

The cost to you is very low because our church budget will subsidize a large part of the expenses:  For the weekend, youth/adults (12 and older) will be only $35.  Children under 12 will be $20.  The family maximum is $125.  This includes everything! (Childcare, four meals, pool costs, bouncy houses, program leaders, etc.)

Sign up on the bulletin board in the church lobby or email the church office your reservation.  Please include a deposit of $50 for your family, or $20 for an individual reservation. 
Mark your calendars now and plan to enjoy this highlight
of the year with your church family!
