**IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT** Retreat postponed

The 2015 Next Church Retreat will be postponed until further notice.

Unfortunately, retreat our venue double booked – for May 29 to 31 – and we were bumped and have been unable to find a suitable alternative site.

But don’t worry! We will continue to explore the Gospel and we will plan for time together on another weekend (and if you’ve already paid we can hold on to your money until the next retreat or we can reimburse you).

In fact, we wonder how many of you would like to camp at Foley Mountain next Friday (29) or Saturday (30)? If you’re interested in this please email

Thanks for understanding. There will be an announcement recapping the situation on Sunday. We look forward to what God has in store for our community.

we will miss Kingston but …

… we can hardly wait for this weekend!

Yes, it is time for our annual retreat.  We are going up to Echo Lake Camp to spend the weekend together, enjoy each other’s company, share meals together, play games, listen to stories, discover each other’s talents, share chores, brush our teeth together, and much more.  We will also be focusing on what it means to grow together in Jesus.
