Family Retreat

In 2006 the congregation of FPC went on a retreat to the 4 – H Center near Columbiana, AL. We found that time of retreat so fun and uplifting that we have been retreating ever since!

Our church wide retreats are just that, church-wide. From our older folks to our younger ones, to single and married folks, to full nesters and empty nesters, we enjoy each other’s company and spend time celebrating our faith life together.

The retreats usually take place in the fall, but we have, on one occasion, retreated in the spring at Rolling Hills Conference Center in Calera, AL.

Fun, Food, Fellowship

We spend time talking, worshipping, fishing, canoeing, hiking, singing, building campfires, eating smores, and playing in any variety of ways.

With our lawn chairs packed and our picnic lunches in the cooler we simply relax and become more closely connected to each other, to creation, and to God.

This year’s retreat is currently being planned, so come back for more information!
