New England Retreat & Couples Retreat
September 13 - September 15
Join your brudders for (1) the seventh annual NCS New England Regional Retreat (just for brudders) AND (2) the fourth annual NCS New England Couples Retreat (just for couples), both at the newly-renovated Heritage Hotel Golf, Spa and Conference Center in the beautiful Litchfield Hills of western Connecticut. The Retreats promise to be a great weekend of fellowship, fun, healing and transformation with Dr. Mark Gordon Fee as our Spiritual Guide for the journey.
As in past years, the Brudders Retreat begins Friday evening with an optional open prayer time at 5:00pm, a dinner at 6:00pm (included in all packages this year) and the first general session at 8:00pm, and it ends Saturday by 3:00pm. Because attendance is capped at 150, we expect the Retreat to sell out quickly–register early! Because Heritage can’t hold 150, it will sell out before the Retreat (when it does, we intend to seek arrangements at a nearby overflow hotel).
Our Theme: “Understanding Changes Everything”
- Do you REALLY understand how much God loves you? Until you do, you are incapable of fully and unconditionally loving others.
- Do you REALLY take the time to listen and understand others, including your spouse, children, friends, colleagues? Until you do, you are incapable of having truly healing conversations, incapable of loving others in the way they need to be loved, and incapable of effecting change that will avoid future misunderstanding and hurt.
- Together, we will seek a greater understanding of God’s love for us as well as the actions and skills needed to have healing conversations, to love others in the specific ways they need to be loved, and to identify and effect change needed so that hurts do not happen again.
The Couples Retreat will be with Dr. Mark Gordon Fee on Saturday evening from 5:00pm-10:00pm, including dinner. It also includes a Saturday night stay at Heritage and a full breakfast buffet Sunday morning. The Couples Retreat is capped at 20 couples and has SOLD OUT quickly in the past!!
