Please make plans to join Pastor Woolly and the men of St. John’s for the 2017 Men’s Beach Retreat. This annual retreat will be held at Kure Beach, North Carolina beginning on Friday, May 5, 2017.
We will join together for a weekend of worship and fellowship. Activities include bicycling, beachcombing, surf and pier fishing, and golfing. Fort Fisher, Carolina Beach State Park, and the N.C. Aquarium are only a short distance from our retreat facility. Our group will stay at a large and beautifully decorated home in Kure Beach across the street from the ocean, and about 5 blocks from the center of Kure Beach. We’ll gather at a local restaurant on Friday evening (dinner at your expense), followed by an evening fellowship gathering. On Saturday, we have breakfast at our house followed by a morning Bible study. Saturday afternoons are free for leisure activities. On Saturday evening, we gather for a low country shrimp broil and a Saturday evening fellowship/worship activity. After breakfast on Sunday, we will worship at Kure Beach Lutheran Church before departing for home.
The cost for the retreat is $150 which includes accommodations, linens, and 4 meals. Golfing and fishing licenses are at a participant’s expense. The house offers bicycles and there are walking areas along the shore. The house also has large decks and a variety of books and magazines. There are also opportunities for shared transportation. In addition to golfing, a group will bike from Kure Beach to Southport by way of the Fort Fisher Ferry. Bikes are available, but you may want to bring your own.
Registration forms may be picked up from the church office or from locations around the St. John’s campus. Please fill out the form and return to the church office with your payment as soon as possible. For any questions, please feel free to call Gary Taylor at 704-639-9701 or Gary Rhodes at 704-279-4302.
