Fall Retreat is the best way to get plugged in to the SCF community by spending a relaxing and enjoyable weekend with people up north. This is the highlight of the fall semester and is a unique opportunity to deepen your relationship with other students and with God. It’s also ridiculously fun, and a great way to make new friends!

Our teaching theme this year is God With Us. We’ll be exploring passages from across the bible to learn more about the God of Christianity who dwells among his people.

The dates of the retreat are September 30th through October 2nd (leave Friday around 3:30 pm and get back Sunday around 3 pm). We’ll be staying at Portage Lake Covenant Bible Camp in Onekama, MI. It’s right on the beautiful Portage Lake, which connects to Lake Michigan. While we’re there, we’ll be relaxing, eating, playing, going to sessions, watching MSU Football, and sometimes sleeping. The cost is $70 for returning students, and $30 for newcomers. Scholarships are available; don’t let money be the reason you don’t come! Contact Andrew Chesebro (chesebr3@gmail.com) to get financial aid.

We will meet at URC on Friday, September 30th at 3:30 pm to caravan. If you need to come up late or come back early, please indicate that when you sign up.
