Jesus the Breach Mender: Living Isaiah 58 is the theme of this year's family retreat. What does it look like to follow Jesus faithfully and be the kind of "breach mender" Isaiah describes? What do prayer, fasting, Bible study, worship, communion have to do with working for justice in East Liberty, Pittsburgh, America, and the world? Jesus, who mended the greatest breach of all - between us and God - shows us how to live in Him so that what we do for Him brings God's presence and restoration to a world in need of hope, healing, and justice.
Our weekend retreat with the Eastminster family includes guest teachers, Saturday experiential workshops, Saturday free time options, nursery and children's programs, and wonderful worship all weekend.
Laurelville is a beautiful wooded Christian retreat center about 50 miles southwest of Pittsburgh. We stay in hotel-style rooms, so there is no need to bring linens, towels, or sleeping bags. All meals on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday are included.
Friday arrival begins at 6:30 p.m. and the program begins at 8:00 p.m.
