Two years ago we tried something new. A retreat! This will be our second time! Think of Jesus words to the disciples, “Come away with me.” We will not be camping out this time. We will be staying in the Cleburne State Park Group Lodging. Our guest speaker for the entire retreat will be Pastor Jim Darnell. This will be an AWESOME time so don’t miss it! As of right now this event is limited to 45 people.
This is timed to occur a week before classes begin at TAMUCC. We want to be ready to make a great impact this year on our college campuses. As we set aside this time to ‘come away’ and seek after him, may the Lord cause us to succeed in our outreach and discipleship endeavors. We will have free time blocked out for swimming in Cedar Lake and hiking in the park. We will also take a short trip to hike in Dinosaur Valley State Park. We will be staying in air-conditioned cabins with a group facility and full professional kitchen accommodations. There will be showers available and air conditioning in our cabins and dining/meeting area. This Retreat will be 3 days and 2 nights. Cleburne and Dinosaur Valley State Park are beautiful North Central Texas parks located about 6 hours from Corpus Christi. SHOWERS will be available every day. We will eat out once on the way home so bring extra spending money.
Come with an expectation of the Lord’s deep working in all of our hearts.
