Crescendo: Lives of Lasting Purpose

This fall, set aside your normal rhythms and make time to join us for a stimulating retreat of fellowship, connecting and new and deepened relationships. Come to be challenged by inspirational teachers and be renewed by worship and being in community with others. The SIXTY PLUS RETREAT is for adults 60 years of age or more, focused around the theme of Crescendo: Lives of Lasting Purpose.

You will learn through the SPICES framework (Spiritual, Physical, Intellectual, Community, Emotions and Service) during this retreat which will include optional workshops, afternoon excursions, delicious food and snacks and time to enjoy the late fall setting in Lake Geneva. The retreat will run out of the Geneva Bay Center, starting Sunday afternoon and concluding late Tuesday morning.

This retreat is a collaboration between Covenant Harbor and Crescendo Ministry leaders Debbie Blue, Alan Forsman and Evelyn Johnson who will lead programming.
