Cedar in September

Cedar in September is an adult retreat that focuses on respite and renewal. This time has been shaped to offer rest in the midst of God’s creation and opportunities for sharpening through fellowship with His people.

Sessions, led by gifted speakers, are complimented by space to reflect, discuss, and play. Take time to be still, worship through hymns, and wander the trails or waters.

So, come and celebrate the autumn season with friends, enjoying Lake Huron’s colorful, picturesque, and tranquil northern shores.
