october 19-21  | Red hook, NY

We’re headed back to beautiful Taconic Retreat Center for a weekend together in (hopefully!) beautiful fall weather! We heard from so many of you last year that it was a great time reconnect as a church family and refocus – and this year we’re excited to see what God does with dedicated time to go deeper with out relationships in community as we learn together and enjoy the type of downtime that’s often hard to come by in our city. Scroll down for info on accommodations and what to expect!
