Bring your confirmation class or other interested participants , grades 6-12, and join us for a weekend of faith and team building. We will explore what it means to be the church and how that commitment continues to evolve. Our focus this year will be on General Synod and its role in the polity of the UCC. Participants will form committees to research, consider faithfully, and vote on several relevant resolutions. Check-in begins at 7pm on Friday. The retreat ends after worship on Sunday, between 11:00 and 11:30am.
The Faith Formation Retreats are a partnership of the Wisconsin Conference UCC and United Church Camps, Inc. Program planning and leadership is offered by a team representing the four Associations of the Wisconsin Conference UCC.
Partial scholarships available. The four Associations of the Wisconsin Conference have generously agreed to provide $50 scholarships to all participants of the Faith Formation Retreats at Pilgrim Center. When registering your group for the retreat, your church will be charged $148/person out of the total fees of $198/person. Whether you decide to subsidize that cost with contributions from participants is up to you. The $50 scholarship will be applied to the individual accounts of participants once they have registered. UCCI staff must apply these scholarships manually, so it may take a day or two. If your church is willing to cover the full cost of this event, please let us know and we will not apply scholarships to these accounts. The Associations will send the scholarship money directly to the camps. Contact Pilgrim Center with scholarship questions: (920)748-6750.
