Fall Retreat 2018 Registration
The registration and information for the 2018 Fall Retreat held by the Adirondack & Capital Area Associations has arrived. This retreat will be held at the Christ the King Spiritual Life Center in Greenwich NY from September 13-15, 2018.
About the Fall Retreat
The world we live in has become a very busy, often chaotic place for many of us. We all need to take a step back and refresh ourselves from time to time.
In September, the Adirondack and CABA associations of American Baptist Women will be holding our Fall Retreat, the perfect opportunity for peaceful rest and renewal for all Christian women. We hope that you will plan to join us for one, two, or three days of fellowship, recharging our batteries, and strengthening our faith at the beautiful Christ the King Spiritual Life Center in the scenic hills of rural Washington County.
With Thursday arrival, again this year, we are offering an optional extra, unstructured day of rest and relaxation, time for you to spend as you like, renewing friendships or making new ones, sharing a time of fellowship, spending quiet time with God, all while enjoying the beauty of NY in the fall on the vast grounds of the retreat center. There are trails to explore, quiet spots for time alone, lovely rooms if napping is on the agenda, and a row of comfortable rocking chairs just waiting for you. Afternoon tea with the nuns is often an option for those who arrive before 3:00.
This year, our keynote speaker will be Rev. Dr. Sandra L. DeMott Hasenauer, Associate Executive Director of American Baptist Women’s Ministries, who will share two sessions with us, as well as a workshop/Bible study. Also joining us will be Kim Cook, Executive Director of The Open Door Mission in Glens Falls. Our mission gifts this year will be monetary donations to this wonderful program.
On Friday evening, following dinner together at 6:00 PM, the structured activities will begin for our weekend retreat.
At the Spiritual Life Center, the main lodging facility will be The King’s Inn, a beautiful one-story building with a lovely, comfortable gathering area, double rooms with private baths, and a sunny porch complete with those rocking chairs. The King’s Inn also has two handicapped-accessible rooms. Single rooms are available for an additional cost.
We hope that you will join us as we offer additional opportunities for enrichment and growth as Christian women.
