September 23 & 24, 2017.

Sunday will start at 8am with a short time of worship and finish up by 5:30pm.


Holmes Presbyterian Camp & Conference Center 
Agape House
90 Presbyterian Way, Holmes, NY 12531 


Clergy and non-clergy alike get much out of this retreat!  Most of FW focuses on spiritual formation for adults, so those under the age of 18 will probably not get the most out of FW101.  
Clergy, should you want to apply for a scholarship to help your church cover the cost of pulpit supply, so you can attend this retreat, please contact your respective Regional Synod.

What is included:

A shame-free environment is provided for you to learn through presentations, times of solitude and prayer, small group sharing, and large group reflection.
You will receive a workbook for the retreat with key information on each session, which will also be your solitude guide.  
Lunch and dinner on Saturday, as well as lunch on Sunday, are included in registration costs.  
Lodging options are available for Friday and/or Saturday nights, with breakfast included.  

What to bring:

Please bring a Bible and a writing utensil.  A jacket or coat might be needed, should you want to venture outside during your times of solitude (autumn is often unsure whether it wants to be warm or cold). And an open and prayerful spirit is always good as well.
