We are Family Retreat is an annual church-wide event. Every fall, around Halloween, those who are able retreat to the mountains for one or two nights to enjoy the company of their church family. Activities include hiking, canoeing, multi-generational football, corn-hole, competitive chair rocking, and board games. On Saturday night, the congregation gathers for singing and storytelling around the bonfire followed by s’mores and hot chocolate.  On Sunday morning, retreaters are joined by other congregation members from Charlotte for worship and a farewell lunch.

We Are Family Retreat will be at Montreat Conference Center.  We will be heading to Montreat NC on Saturday October 28th and returning Sunday October 29th.  There will be many activities to choose from or just enjoy a rocking chair beside a fellow church member.  We will be staying in Assembly Inn, which was recently completely remodeled and updated.  We couldn’t end the day without the infamous “Bill Gaut Bonfire”.  Sunday we will begin the day with breakfast and a worship service led by our Pastors and Praise Team.  We would love to have as many congregants attend as possible!  Please speak with your Fellowship Ministry Team if you have any special needs or questions.
