Our Annual Congregational Retreat in Montreat provides a unique opportunity for our church family – members and friends alike – to step back from the everyday activities and be renewed in our life together.  

Retreats remain a vital part of our Christian faith formation.  Jesus modeled this intentional time by seeking solitude away from the crowds to grow more aware of God’s presence.  Time set apart at our annual church retreat will help you:

  • Build friendships & strengthen our church family
  • Renew your call to live daily as a person of faith
  • Slow down your hectic life
  • Provide rest and relaxation
  • Explore Radical Hospitality
