TwentySomeone This Weekend?

In Books, Places on November 6, 2007 at 2:00 am

Sure, it's only three days' notice, but if you're a twenty-something (or know of one) looking for a meaningful reason to spend Friday and Saturday at a small campground in central Missouri this weekend, here's your random chance (and it's cheap).

  • What: TwentySomeone retreat
  • When: November 9th and 10th, Friday (6 p.m.) – Saturday night (8 p.m.)
  • Where: Cedar Crest Campgrounds, Santa Fe, MO (no website, so don't even look for one; call my friend John Gillman at 573.239.1662 for directions).
  • What to bring: bedding; comfortable clothing; toiletries (shower available); games; sporting equipment; musical instruments; non-electronic entertainment; Bible; pen. There are separate male and female dorms (sorry, married folks: you’ll have to split up for a night).
  • Cost: $30 includes all meals, lodging, and a copy of TwentySomeone (cash or checks payable to Harrisburg Christian Church).

(eat dinner on your own before you arrive; Centralia is your closest fast food)

  • 6:00: Camp opens; check in; get book; get set in your cabin
  • 7:00: Opening / orientation to the camp
  • 7:30: Opening session: The Question of Our Twenties*
  • 9-12: Free time; campfire; games; smores; snacks


  • 8:00: Breakfast provided
  • 9:00: General session: God Has a Wonderful (and Strange and Confusing) Plan for Your Life*
  • 11:00: Time for reflection
  • 12:00: Lunch provided
  • 12:45 Breakout sessions
    Option A: Faith – Answering the Big Questions (Who made God?, etc.)
    Option B: Relationships – What is your Love Language?
  • 2:00: Breakout sessions
    Option A: Faith – What is forgiveness all about?
    Option B: Relationships – Finding and being the right mate
  • 3-5: Free time
  • 5:00: Dinner provided
  • 5:45: Closing session: Legacy – Rethinking Accomplishment and Success*
  • 7:00: Hang out; pack up; clean up; leave

*These are the sessions I'm doing; the workshops are being led by other pastors.

It's going to be a nice gathering of about 20-30 folks from several different churches in the middle of Missouri, so it will be super-laidback, and you won't get lost in the crowd. And come on: it's only $30 for the whole thing (including a book). To register, call 573.875.5577.

Megan and the girls are going, but if anyone from the St. Louis area would like to go and needs a ride, we've got one open spot between car seats. First come, first served.
