The annual church retreat will be held on the Labor Day weekend at Blowing Rock Conference Center in the Blue Ridge Mountain area. We are expecting 120 people from two years old to eighty years old, including the brothers and sisters from Wilmington Chinese Church.
We have invited two wonderful speakers from out of state this year. Brother Ko from Dallas, Texas will bring seven session of message around the theme "Be the Instrument of God". He is specializing in family counselling and author of many books in this area. We will look forward to his inspiring messages and gain wisdom from them. We also have Pastor Tony Chuang and Esther from Chicago. They are the second generation Asian American. We will be looking forward to their sharing of their experience of serving in balance of the Eastern and Western culture, which will be a great help to our own young people.
Besides the messages, we have reserved four hours of free time Sunday afternoon. There are options such as visiting Grand Father Mountain , hiking around Blue Ridge Parkway, and High Gravity Zip Line。 We will also have camp fire on Sunday night. We can sing praise songs and share food around the fire.
May God renew our spirit and body through his creation and message in these three days.
The registration fee will include six buffet style meals and the hotel style accommodation, which consists of two queen-size beds, toiletry, towels and free Wi-Fi。
We are looking forward to see you at retreat!!
