Welcome to the Jacob's Creek Family Retreat website! Let us introduce ourselves, and tell you a little bit about what we're doing and why we think it's important and useful.
Jacob's Creek is a multi-generational gathering of people, meeting in a beautiful setting for spiritual learning and growing. From different parts of North America, we come together for a few days to be close to the Lord. Just as He said, "Where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them."
People come to this retreat from New Church groups around Boston, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Washington, Philadelphia, Kempton, Toronto, Kitchener, and even Texas! Many have been attending for years - we just celebrated our 25th year of camp. Others come for the first time, then ask themselves why they didn't make space in their lives for this retreat sooner.
Every year there is a theme for camp, tying together the lectures, classes, and activities. In 2018, the theme was, "Let Your Light Shine: Sharing the Good News." The theme for 2019 was "Sacraments and Rites of the New Church." 2020's theme will be "The Ten Blessings."
