Father/Son Retreat Oct. 2007

By the time the day was over the hill was covered with the tents and RV's for 200 men and boys gathered for the Father/Son retreat. They came from many parts of the country. There was a group from the Bronx, California, Tennessee, Virginia, North and South Carolina, Florida, Indiana and on and on. They were all hungry to become better Biblical fathers and sons.

Deborah and the women of the church planned and prepared meals and snacks for all these hungry people.

There were times of fun and times of serious teaching on the relationship of fathers and sons. There was a canoe trip down the Neuse River. There was swimming, fishing, kayak racing and shooting arrows at water balloons in the pond. The pond was the community bath when needed(of course with bio-degradable soap.)

Lester barbecued chicken for the first night.

Scott and the Helwigs.

Well, they were the servers and preparers and were allowed to eat.

Many of the men and boys stayed for Sunday, so church was held in the tent. Several other churches joined us that day, too. It was a joyous occassion.
