Men’s Retreat – March 4-6, 2016

Mens RetreatMark Your Calendar!

March 4-6, 2016 Men’s Pine Lake Retreat sign up has begun.

Think BIG!! 


We want to get a hearty group of 30 or more men for our next Methodist Men’s Retreat.

We will have 3 days of priceless fellowship…indoors and out…in the beautiful surroundings of the Methodist Retreat Center near Westfield, WI.

Includes outstanding leadership with Pastor Jeremy Deaner and a meaningful theme for group discussion. 2 nights of “motel-like” comfort and 6 meals starting Friday evening, March 4 and ending at noon on Sunday, March 6, 2016. You will have plenty of recreation time…time to get to know new friends and refresh old friendships.


The bonus challenge is, if we gather at least 30 guys (from any church or with a FAUMC member to sponsor) to sign up for the Methodist Men’s Retreat. We will be gifted the entire retreat cost – that is a priceless gift !!!

We will carpool toward Westfield for Friday evening supper and return after Sunday noon dinner. You will have fond memories of a 3-day retreat…a unique bargain.


Sign up for the retreat on the bulletin board in the north entrance or contact the office at 262-334-2059 Email: Church@faumc.org. Plan now to join this great opportunity that comes without cost. You may also call Bob Krell at 262-334-9360 with questions.
