Bulletins, newsletters, communications...oh my!  So much work goes on behind the scenes, helping churches to function and carry out their mission, that it really shouldn't be called "adminstration," it should be called "ad-ministry!" This retreat is dedicated to all the support staff that help keep congregations throughout the Synod stay informed, enlightened, and on schedule.

Examples of previous retreat sessions have included copyright information, digital photography, church safety, CPR, stress relief techniques, and more.

The time away will include opportunity to think, to read, to reflect, to sing, to enjoy delicious food, to check out the beautiful grounds of Camp Calumet, and to have tons of fun. We also have an optional Yankee Swap on Monday evening!

Our Tuesday morning field trip will be to the Alice Bemis Thompson Sanctuary in nearby Sandwich, NH
