Retreat Registration Guidlines

 All reservations are secured in the order received.   The retreat is limited to 34 rooms or approximately 60 guests and it almost always sells out. Once Registration begins, to avoid ending up on a waiting list, complete your online registration as soon as possible (regardless if you are Fellowship Retreat member or new guest)

Please read all the registration guidelines on this page

 

First-time attendees:

  1. First-time attendees are referred/invited to attend by current member
  2. First-time attendees only become members once they attend a retreat
  3. First-time attendees will not be added to the retreat mailing list until they have registered and attended a retreat.
  4. First-time attendees receive notifications, information and registration forms for upcoming retreats directly from a referring current member.
  5. Existing members should consider their new referrals/invitations for first-time attendees in light of the nature and purpose of the retreat’s fellowship.  This ensures new attendees are well received and preserves the open, deep, rich and welcoming nature of the fellowship.
