OHIO DISCIPLES MEN'S FALL RETREAT
Men from all over the Region will come to Camp Christian to hear Dr. Hamm speak on the topic of "Men as Spiritual Leaders." This portion of the retreat is being made possible by a generous donation. Because of this donation, the Saturday program will be free to attend, and therefore lowers the cost of the entire weekend for Men attending the whole retreat. As for the rest of the retreat, there will be a movie night on Friday, bible study on Saturday morning, free time to enjoy fellowship & Camp Christian in the late afternoon, and Vespers in the evening. Sunday we’ll close with a hearty breakfast and Worship. More details can be found on the Registration Brochure linked above.
