Summer Retreat 2016

This year’s retreat will be held at Oak Glen Christian Conference Center the weekend of August 26-28. The theme is Worshipping and Walking with the Lord and we’re delighted to have Pastor Peter Smith from Hope In Christ Bible Church as our guest speaker this year.

Please continue to check this page for updates. This weekend's schedule is available below, along with a list of items to bring.

If you do not plan on attending retreat, but you would like to join us for worship on Sunday morning, our service will begin at 9:00am. You will need to fill out a release form, so please speak with someone from the Admin team upon arrival.

Update: Paintball is Cancelled

Those who were planning on participating in paintball are welcome to join the challenge course group or participate in one of the many available free-time activities.

Update: Registration Time

The registration table will open at 5:30pm Friday evening. The Admin team will have room assignments available at that time. Check-in before unloading your car. You will likely be able to park closer to your assigned room or cabin. If you arrive in Oak Glen early, apple picking season is open! Huell Howser can show you the best places to stop on the way.
