2017 Walks

If y'all have been keeping up with the happenings of our community you know that Short Journey Retreat Center is closing effective Dec. 31, 2016. Your steering committee has reviewed some options for our future Walks and we have decided on using Camp Agape in Fuquay-Varina. Things will be a little different but we will be able to conduct our Walks successfully and who knows, it may be a better facility!

The new dates for 2017 Walks are as follows:
Men's Walk #133 - March 9-12, 2017
Women's Walk #134 - May 4-7, 2017 (not a misprint, this is the only date available for us)
Men's Walk #135 - Sept. 21-24, 2017
Women's Walk #136 - October 12-15, 2017

Please note that the men's walk is only 7 months away. It sounds like a long time but we started getting men's applications for Walk #131 about 7 months ago. It's not too early to start talking to prospective pilgrims and getting applications sent in. The new facility has a cancellation policy that will be punitive if we have to cancel a walk so we need to keep up the momentum that we have experienced by filling our walks.

The steering committee has recently formed a new board of directors so the next step has been taken to continue the revitalization of our community. We look forward to giving you more information at our next Gathering on September 23 at White Plains UMC.
