Volunteer Retreat and Service Day

Give Thanks, Give Back 2022

Our first Give Thanks, Give Back Volunteer and Fellowship Retreat is scheduled for Nov 4-6, 2022. This new retreat is a chance for adults aged 18 years and older to gather at John Knox Ranch for fellowship and service. This retreat will combine service and fellowship with Saturday being the service project day. Retreat participants will help serve as leaders for the additional volunteers that come for Saturday only.

Projects may include painting, clearing brush, organizing, sweating, being a part of something bigger than yourself. Bring: work clothes, gloves, swimsuit, loppers, pruners, chain saw (if you have one and feel comfortable using it).

Sign up for the Weekend Retreat, Friday evening Nov 4 through Sunday morning Nov 6. Cost of the weekend is $50 per person for shared housing in Duplex Cabins. Families (all participants must be over 18) can choose to stay together in a screen cabin if they prefer. The fee helps pay for your meals and service project supplies. Scholarships are available. Please contact Henry Owen at jkrdirector@missionpby.org for scholarship information. Space is limited. Register here.

Sign up for the Service Day only, Saturday Nov 5, 2022. 9am – 5pm. No Cost. Please register here so we know who to expect. Come for all or part. Minimum age 14. All minors must be supervised by their guardians.

Come get your hands dirty, eat delicious food, and be renewed by fellowship!
