Family Weekend Retreat - July 15-17

Join your friends at Bear Lake Campground (just south of Manawa) for this outdoor retreat.  This is simply friends having fun, and you are invited!  Rent a site and stay for a night or two, or just visit during the day.  There aren’t planned activities besides the Worship Service on Saturday.  Come have fun.  This event is open to all, so invite and encourage others to come.

Come for the Day

Do you want to have the fun of camping without actually camping?  Come for part of the day.  Day visitors can use the beach, rent kayaks, enjoy the bonfires and be part of the group. The campground charges $2 per day visitor. 

Come For a Few

Spend the night camping.  The campground has spots for tents and campers that can be rented for Friday and Saturday night. Reserve your site in our group site here at church!
