2021 Cobblestone Men’s Retreat is scheduled for September 17-19 with Pastor Rick. We have the same lodge again this year (Casper III) Camp Kern. The lodge has 2 sleeping rooms. Each room can sleep up to 18 guys and is divided into 3 areas with bunk beds and mattresses. Each sleeping room has it’s own bathroom with heated showers. The main living area has a large kitchen with refrigerator/freezer/microwave and a large living room with vaulted ceiling with a large stone fireplace.
We hope all men from cobblestone can make it. REMEMBER, you can come for any part of the weekend that fits your style, availability, etc. It would be appreciated if you would e-mail the church and/or Brent at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you plan to attend any portion of the Men’s retreat by August 23rd so we can plan for supplies, etc. If you plan to stay overnight, we would like to have the money in by August 23rd also. However, if you are unsure about your ability to attend or stay overnight; you can let me know right up to September 17th. If you would like to attend but finances are tight, you can let the church know. We have extra money donated each year to help anyone attend the retreat who wants.
