Church Family Weekend at the Pinelands
We welcome you to be part of this special weekend as we gather as a church family to learn, work and fellowship together. As part of our time together, our schedule includes time for these three things to be lived out. All ages and abilities are invited to participate as we use this time to grow closer to God and to each other. Activities will include a campfire, exploring the Center, a special scavenger hunt, worship, and communion as well as mission projects around the center.
On Saturday and Sunday mornings we will spend time helping with various projects around the Center. This may be renovating a cabin, painting, cleaning an outdoor area or some other project that is needed. There will certainly be a job for every ability. While most of the tools and equipment will be provided, it would be a good idea to bring your own work gloves.
Pinelands Center at Mt. Misery is a camp & retreat center of the United Methodist Church of Greater New Jersey. It lies on nearly 150 acres of forest in the coastal plains of southern New Jersey. Nestled in the middle of the historic National Pinelands Reserve, Pinelands Center is surrounded on most sides by cranberry bogs and preserved forestland, including miles of trails in Brendan T. Byrne State Park. We are blessed to play in and learn from Mt. Misery Lake, a stream and spring-fed lake and wetland filled with the famously rare plants and animals of the Pine Barrens.
Brochures are available throughout the church. Please do not hesitate to contact Reva Luce or Pastor Charlie with any questions, or if you need assistance with the payment.
