Men’s Weekend (Sept 17–19, 2021)
Grab some friends (or fly solo) and join us in the north woods at Trout Lake Camps – "a meeting place with God" since 1945. Step outside of the norm for a chance to dig deeper into your faith, connect with other guys and have a lot of fun. Breathe in the fresh air and see what God can do in just 40 hours. That scent in the air? Rest, renewal, rejuvenation (and grilled meat). More than a change of scenery, it's a change of spirit.
The cost ranges between $120–$140 depending on housing.
Speaker: Eric Weaver
As a freshman at Waldorf College, Eric was captured by the irresistible grace and love of God. After college, Eric worked at a Bible camp and then served at a church in Cedar Valley before moving to Colorado to earn his Master of Divinity from Denver Seminary. Eric serves as the lead pastor of First Baptist Church in Forest City and is passionate about Jesus, spending time with family and sports. He is married to Katie and together they have at least five kids.
Worship: Matt Berry
Matt has served as a worship pastor in the Twin Cities for more than a decade. Prior to that, he toured the country for four years as a recording artist and member of the band, Clear. Matt and his wife, Heather, have four children and live in White Bear Lake.
Choose to spend time with men from your church, friends from around the state, or alone with God. There is a space for you to do what you need in this “Meeting Place with God.”
The retreat begins at 5 pm on Friday evening. The first chapel session starts at 9 pm. At registration you will receive an information packet including a weekend schedule, list of recreation opportunities, seminar listings and church group locations.
The Saturday steak fry is an important part of Men’s Weekend and it is always a highlight. Grill your own steak to perfection and be the envy of every guy who burns his to a crisp. Come prepared for tasty home cooked food and plenty of it.
Seminars will be offered at 11 am on Saturday. Many of them will be repeated in the afternoon and these seminars offer an opportunity to discuss topics like marriage or discipleship in a small group setting.
