Dear Church Family,
We are excited to invite you to our Spring Spiritual Retreat on April 1-3 at Ridgecrest Conference Center in Black Mountain, NC. The last couple of years have been challenging for so many, not just physically and mentally but also spiritually. If you have felt spiritually famished, know that you are not alone. We all need to take some time out of our normal schedule to be refreshed spiritually. Jesus himself would take time to get away so that he could be alone with the Father.
“But now even more the report about him went abroad, and great crowds gathered to hear him and to be healed of their infirmities. But he would withdraw to desolate places and pray.” (Luke 5:15–16)
And what better way to enjoy spiritual refreshment than in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina among our WABC family. This retreat is for both singles and couples. Throughout our time at Ridgecrest, we will have times of fellowship as well as periods of teaching through selected psalms by Andy Lackey and Brian Pestotnik. We will also have ample free time to explore the local Asheville/Black Mountain area (hiking, shopping, Biltmore Estate, etc.).
We will be staying in the Mountain Laurel East and West Building, which is set up like a hotel (not youth camping with bunk beds). We will enjoy dinner together on Friday and Saturday evenings as well as breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. Your lunch will be on your own on Saturday. While you can check in any time after 4 PM on Friday, our retreat will officially begin at dinner on Friday evening. And we will conclude Sunday at noon after a time of teaching and worship.

The deadline to register is February 27. Do not hesitate to get in touch with Brian Pestotnik or Andy Lackey for more information.
We all need to give our minds and hearts space to breathe, to hear God in ways we hadn’t before. So we encourage you to join us for this special weekend for a time to reflect, relax, and a time to fellowship with others, as well as time alone with our Lord.
