Keynote Speaker: REV. DR. CATHY MYERS WIRT
Theme: “FORWARD LEANING
Luke 13: 10-12
Reverend Cathy Myers Wirt will lead this year’s retreat. Rev. Cathy and her husband Douglas are Co-Regional Pastors of the Christian Church in Oregon and Southwest Idaho since 2001. Rev. Cathy edited the “New Day for Women” magazine for nine years, and is a therapist doing pastoral counseling. Rev. Cathy told the National Benevolent Association in an interview that “As a regional pastor, creating communities of compassion and care is what I spend my days doing. From my time in church camps, women’s ministries, small-group faith formation groups—creating and sustaining community is the work of a regional church”.
Retreat Service Projects
This year we have chosen to support our Veterans and the Cleveland Christian home. The Veteran Administration in Columbus has an ongoing need for personal care items that are in constant demand. Due to budget spending limitations and other restrictions many of the items that are needed are only available through donations. Gift cards of $10 and $20 will be purchased with one-third of the donations and donated to the VA. The Coordinator will come to Camp on Saturday afternoon to accept the donations and speak to the group.
Cleveland Christian Home is in need of the following items (new or like new) for the children, teens and families that are served. They will receive 1/3 of the donations as well.
