38th Annual Christian
Join Us at a New Location - Another beautiful setting!
As you know we had plans to go to another state for our 2017, but we were met with some challenges. Read an excerpt from our new President's letter.
"Over the many years of attending the retreat I have learned that those years that have been faced with extensive obstacles have resulted in being the most Spirit filled and inspirational gatherings of all. As excitement for the 2017 ACWR grew and planning developed, unexpected hurdles had to be overcome. When our original location for this year's retreat called to inform us they were selling their property to another organization who was not willing to honor our reservation, we were a bit discouraged, but definitely not defeated.
The theme for this year's retreat is Jesus The Same: Yesterday, Today and Forever and we were quickly reminded that the God we serve can handle all things as He has in the past and will continue to in the future. When one door closes another opens and we were blessed to secure another retreat location that meets all of our needs and provides a beautiful setting filled with the awesome grandeur of God's creation.
The 2017 ACWR will be held at Shocco Springs Conference Center in Talledega, Alabama. Take a moment to visit their website at www.shocco.org and let the excitement for the upcoming retreat build!" -Ayme Jones
