Cedar in September

Mariners' Cove September 10-15, 2023

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.

Our Bible-focused sessions are complemented by opportunities for small group reflection and discussion. This is a time to be still, worship God through hymns, and bask in God’s handiwork.

Each day will start off with worship and devotional time in the mornings followed by relaxing activities through the afternoons and evenings. One day will be set apart from the rest to explore a unique location in the Eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Guest Speaker: Dr. Keith Kunda

Dr. Keith Kunda holds a Master’s degree in church music with a minor in Christian Education from Asbury Theological Seminary and a doctorate in music from Ball State University. He served for 19 years as a pastor of music and worship at five churches in four different denominations. He has also been a K-12 teacher, a recording studio producer, and a college professor.

Dr. Kunda has been a lifelong student of the Scriptures, and he has extensive experience as both a preacher and teacher of the Word of God. Theologically conservative and thoroughly evangelical, he is committed to in-depth biblical preaching that emphasizes the essentials of the Christian faith, while recognizing that all who know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are brothers and sisters in Christ, regardless of their church affiliation. He is a firm believer that great music, active congregational participation, and excellence are all vital components of Christian worship.

Dr. Kunda has been married for 35 years.
