Parish Retreat Sept 16th – Sept 18th
Camp Mikell, Toccoa, GA
Greetings Parish Members,
I want to thank you all very much for taking a weekend off from your activities, your to-do lists, or whatever you could be doing in order to spend a weekend together as a parish. This retreat is designed for our parish to re-invigorate the congregation, help parishioners to connect faith in their daily life or live out their discipleship purpose as a parish. Enjoy a weekend full of spirituality and fellowship with other Annunciation parishioners and clergy. Camp Mikell is a wonderful place to relax, enjoy the outdoors, and experience God with the beloved community. The weekend includes old favorites such as s’mores, hiking, rocking on the porch, ice cream, music, and the beautiful scenery the rustic setting Camp Mikell has to offer. Our priests, Paul and Gretchen will offer an adult program during the weekend exploring our Christian understanding of faith as we enjoy fellowship, laughter, prayer and worshiping together in the chapel on Sunday during our closing Eucharist.
Camp Mikell Conference Center is located outside of Atlanta in Toccoa Georgia. ECA members who attend the parish retreat will experience an excellent opportunity for people of all ages to enjoy God’s creation and each other. Meals are served cafeteria style in the dining hall and accommodations are available in different areas of the camp’s grounds. I hope many of us will be able to make it and enjoy all that God has to offer to us as we gather together at Camp Mikell.
