Refresh Your Spirit at a Camp or Conference this Summer!
2019 Capital Area Camps & Conferences
Feeling a Bit out of Sorts with the Divine?
Everyone needs their spirit refreshed and their spiritual journey recalibrated now and then. The busy-ness of our lives, the stress of jobs and family, the uncertainties of the world, can get to us and make us feel disconnected with God and lose sight of the call Jesus has extended to all of us to love God and serve our neighbors.
There are many ways to get back on track and refocus our spiritual lives. Investing ourselves more fully in the worship, outreach, and spiritual activities of our local church is a great way to do that. Perhaps a hike at Great Falls National Park or one of the many trails around Harpers Ferry, West Virginia would help. Some people read books, blog posts, or devotionals. Others like to do puzzles, sudoku, or bullet journals to get some perspective.
But there is a truly wonderful, tried-and-true, way of refreshing and renewing your spirit: church camp. Yes, going on a retreat, attending a conference, being part of a camp community with other folks who are also on a spiritual journey is an incredibly effective and wonder-filled way of relating to God in new ways. This is especially true if there is excellent programming for Christian nurture and development that is a part of it.
Well you are lucky, because the Outdoor Ministry Committee of *your* Regional Church has just such a camp and conference program designed for you! Check out the information below and sign up today for the camp or conference of your choice (or several!) You are destined to feel the refreshing winds of the Spirit revive your soul, whether at the ocean’s edge at Bethany Beach or through the trees of Camp Mary Mac.
The Christian Church Capital Area (CCCA) Outdoor Ministries program hosts seasonal events for all ages. You can find retreats and weekends for youth, young adults, seniors, women, men, and families— all affordably priced and centered on deep spiritual growth, conversation, and community.
