All Church Retreat

Starting with Why: Exploring the Big Questions of Faith

WHEN: Saturday, October 20, 10am – Sunday October 21, 1pm

WHERE: Camp Hanover, Mechanicsville, VA

WHAT: Join with other Westerners for a couple of days away at scenic Camp Hanover. We’ll share meals, meet in small groups, spend time outdoors, and worship together. Our theme will look at the big questions of faith – Why are we here? Why do bad things happen? and Why the church?



We’ll be staying in lodges with rooms of 5 beds. Families can reserve their own room. Adults will share rooms, either by gender and/or by couple, depending on availability.

Sharing Leadership

We’re asking everyone to help with one area of leadership:

  • Meal setup and cleanup
  • Childcare
  • Free time activity
  • Campfire
