2021 Men’s Retreat Info

Theme:  The Creed is Life

We will take a deep dive into the faith using the three articles of the Apostles Creed.  We will study scripture that undergirds each article as well as consulting Luther’s treatment of the Creed in the Large Catechism.  Our goal will be to discover how each article of the Creed enriches and shapes our walk of faith.

Saturday Activities

The Refuge is a beautiful setting with easy and moderate hikes close by.  There will be cornhole and even horse shoes set up to play.  You can simply bring a good book to read and have your own quiet time and/or join in one or more of the activities.  There may be a group that heads out fishing as the National Park is near by.  Moreover, there also maybe a group who goes golfing-Lake Cushman golf course is about 30 minutes away from our location.  The activities will be flexible – it is free time!


We will be bringing all our food and beverages for our meals which we will prepare onsite with the exception of Saturday afternoon where, those who wish, will meet at the Geoduck Restaurant and Lounge for a beverage.  There is a no alcohol policy at the Refuge Retreat Center.

The Refuge is a Christian retreat lodge near Brinnon, Wa.  There are some individual rooms, rooms with two people, and rooms with multiple beds.  We will try and accommodate your needs as much as possible in this regard.  Please communicate any strong preferences to Pastor Bill.  Our last retreat in 2019 was at the Refuge and it was a fantastic venue.
