No matter our intentions each year to head out of town for a weekend in autumn for a planning retreat it’s easier said than done. But the stars are lining up this year and we’ll be heading back to Marion, Iowa, in November. First Presbyterian will be hosting us as they did in 2008.
We’ll hit the road Friday morning, unload our gear when we get there, and the evening will be community building time for us. Saturday we’ll divide our time between rehearsal and meeting to do some planning for the coming year and perhaps a longer range project or two (our next CD, anybody?).
Come to First Pres Saturday evening, November 14th, at 7:00 if you’re in the area. We’ll be giving a concert and would love to see you there! There’s no charge to attend; a free-will offering will be collected to benefit Marion Cares, a worthy local mission addressing the academic, financial, social, and spiritual needs of students and their families.
Sunday morning you’ll find us singing in worship, and then we’ll be packing up and heading back home. It’ll be a full weekend for us. If past retreats are any indication it will be time very well spent!
