Fall 2015 Retreat – Stories, Food & Solitude

Friday, November 13 through Sunday, November 15, 2015 For the past seven years the focal point of our community life at GracePointe has been our Fall  Retreat. This year’s retreat will be exceptional. As a beginning, we have invited a teacher and spiritual guide that has already had a great impact on the GracePointe for several years. Ian Morgan Cron is an author, speaker, Episcopal priest, and retreat guide. He authored Chasing Francis: A Pilgrim’s Tale. We will have this book available at the Tribes table several weeks before the retreat; it is a must read.

Father Child Campout

Join us at GracePointe for the Father-Child Camping and Cookout on June 14th! Each year our dads and grand dads gather with our kids for a one-night campout on the church property. We provide a great fire, all of the food, drinks and glow sticks that you could want. You bring your tent and sleeping bag, flashlights, guitars, chairs and other stuff. Last year we had 50+ people hanging around a fire getting to know each other and the kids have a great time. For those that don’t have camping gear bring the kids out for smores, glow sticks and some rock throwing in the creek. Fill out my online form. Fill out my Wufoo...
