Sponsored by St. Paul Lutheran Seminary and the SEC LCMC Fellowship our Lutheran Retreat offers refreshing, faith-enriching experiences for pastors, lay leaders and spouses by offering Christian discussions, rewarding comradery and outdoor relaxation. There will be speakers, discussions, thanks and praise. You won’t want to miss this event.
Renewing the Local Church!
Our retreat this year will offer many helpful ideas to bring life back into congregations! Pastors cannot do it alone…. a congregation-wide effort using biblical principles is needed. We can learn together and don’t forget to bring your bible!
Pr. Bradley Hales and Rev. Julie Smith will lead the presentations and discussion. Pr. Hales is the pastor of Reformation Lutheran Church, Culpeper, VA; the Director for Renewal for the North American Lutheran Church, and author of “Reviving the Aging Church.” Rev. Julie Smith is the Coordinator for Districts and Fellowships of the LCMC. Be prepared to delve into the root causes of congregational stagnancy and decline and learn about biblical ways that the church can be revived for His purposes.
Come a few days before…Stay for the conference…perhaps stay longer!
WHAT WILL IT COST?
Per Person – $50, Seminarians-$25
WHERE DO WE STAY?
There are at least eight hotels near the I95 and Hwy 21 interchange (convenient to Holy Trinity just north on Hwy 21). Another possibility is the Ebenezer Retreat Center (www.newebenezer.org/) near the historic Jerusalem Lutheran Church which was completed in 1769, and still has worship services today as the oldest Lutheran church in America with a continuously active congregation. There are many outstanding activities for you to enjoy near Savannah and certainly the food is great! Why not come early and stay for the conference or attend the conference and remain for a couple of additional days???Register for the Conference, find speaker info and schedule using this link!…
