Camp Hebron, Halifax PA
Will There be Enough?
with guest speaker Jeff Raught
Jeff Raught is a musician, storyteller and actor who “brings his love of story to a unique artistic dimension”. He has been working with Ted & Company for years. Through humor and music, Jeff will share about the concept of enough: “What is it we think we need more of– money, time, things…. faith? Having enough is way beyond what we are collecting or amassing. Having enough faith does not mean you are a theological giant. Every person has times of doubt and even indifference. What if we approach having enough as having the right amount for the small moments, rather than trying to have it all at once…all the time? Sometimes we need just enough to get through. That amount is always available within us. God has promised that. We just have to look in the right place.”
We will worship together at the camp on Sunday morning – there will be no services at Blossom Hill.
Things to think about:
- Bring your bikes
- Games are appreciated
- Extra blankets, pillows and cribs will not be provided by Camp Hebron.
- Check the weather for the weekend and pack appropriately.
A note about the cost…. The cost for our annual retreat is $268 for one person, $318 for a couple, $368 for a family of four. We will have a basket available throughout the weekend in the gathering room for contributions. Blossom Hill plans for the retreat in our annual church budget so that all can attend regardless of ability to contribute. However, it is helpful if those that could pay the total amount or a portion of the cost, could do so.
