The NDPC Church Wide Retreat team needs everyone’s feedback for this year’s retreat. If you are interested in helping plan this years trip, please email [email protected] to join our team.
NDPC members and friends love a chance to get away and connect with one another and God. An All-Church retreat is in the works for October 2019. Jill Jacques and April Biagioni are working with Community Fellowship chairs, Holly and Thom on this.
The Women’s and Men’s full weekend retreats are taking a hiatus this Spring (2019) but will be back in 2020. The women will gather for a day-long mini-retreat on April 13th. Traditionally, these retreats take place on the first weekend of March and the last weekend of April, although they are subject to the liturgical calendar cycle of Lent and Easter. If you want to help make these happen, talk to past leaders and sign up for the leadership team through the Community Fellowship and Special Events committee: [email protected].
(Chairs, Holly Williams and Thom Shreck).

Please bring a folding chair to the retreat. Annie Godfrey suggested that we try to be trash less, so please bring a cup or glass, a plate, and a fork. If your electronic directions land you in a crowd of big houses, that is the old back pastier so please go back out of that place, take an immediate right, go to the next light (300 feet) and take an immediate right onto Polk Street, go to the next light ( a little over 1/4 mile) and take a right onto Burnt Hickory- go up the slight hill and down and take a right and go up the hill (about 1/2 mile). There should be balloons on the mail box. If you get lost, call Kent (see Realm for the #). You can get an aerial map of the farm on Google Maps. Please come and visit and rest and wander. Kennesaw Mountain is right next to the farm. Please RSVP to Kent Leslie at [email protected]. To carpool contact Sherrill Terry at [email protected]. Do come and commune together and have fun.
