Men's Retreat 2019

The annual Creekside Men's Retreat at Mount Hermon in the Santa Cruz mountains is a chance to step away from daily life for a weekend of fellowship, and fun. It's a time to stop, give thanks, assess, refocus, and strengthen your relationship with God. The weekend includes times of worship and teaching, testimonies, prayer time, small group discussions, and free time.


In addition to teaching, sharing, and worship, you will eat six great meals in the dining hall, and have plenty of free time to hike among the redwoods and ferns on one of Mount Hermon's streamside trails, go to the MacAfee Fieldhouse, which has ping-pong, air hockey, and other games as well as basketball and volleyball courts, get a drink at the coffee shop, play board games, see an old growth redwood forest at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, eat ice cream at the Mount Hermon snack shop or at the incredible Marianne's Ice Cream in downtown Santa Cruz, and much more.

Be sure to bring casual clothes, gym/hiking shoes, soap, shampoo, a towel, Bible, and a pillow.


The retreat begins at dinner at 7:00 p.m. Friday, October 4th and ends after lunch at 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 6th.
