Ohio Pastor's Retreat

5774 Township Highway 212
Lakeville, OH

Camp Bethany

Each Fall for many years now, Brethren pastors, elders, licensed and commissioned persons and Brethren students from Ashland University and Ashland Theological Seminary have been invited to a retreat at beautiful Camp Bethany: 5774 Township Highway 212, Lakeville, OH 44638. The tradition continues again this Fall!

You are invited to attend the 2017 Fall Brethren Pastors Retreat on September 25-26!

On Monday you may arrive anytime after noon. Move your stuff into the lodge, locate a bunk, & get settled in. Take a relaxing walk! Take a nap! Enjoy time with the Lord!

The retreat officially begins with supper at 6:00 pm on Monday & concludes the following lunch on Tuesday. We are to be off the Camp property by 3:00 pm on Tuesday.

For those who want to golf, tee time on Monday is at 12:30 pm at Round Lake Golf Course (2652 State Route 179, Lakeville, OH; a ½ mile north of State Route 3). It costs about $27.00 for 18 holes with a cart. Please notify me at phillpastorlynn@windstream.net if you plan to join me.

Cost for the retreat is $25.00 for those who stay overnight. For all others, it is $15.00.

Please make check payable to “Lynn Mercer”.

There will be fellowship, prayer, & worship! We plan to have a session on Monday evening on one of the chapters from A Brethren Witness for the 21stCentury. I’ll let you know later which chapter we’ll be covering so you can have time to read it prior to the retreat. On Tuesday morning we’ll have a discussion based upon the “Brethren Positions on Social Issues Document” and we hope to hear an update on Regionalization as well as other important Brethren issues!

The dress is casual. Please bring your own bedding, pillow, towel, toiletries, etc. and a snack to share on Monday evening.

Please notify me by September 1st if you plan to attend all or any portion of the retreat so that we can plan adequately for the meals. My email address is listed above; church phone 937-676-2802; cell 937-441-9771. Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions! Thanks!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

In the love of Jesus,

Lynn Mercer
