All Church Retreat at Canyon Camp
It seemed like over the summer we were commissioning groups from our children and youth programs to go to camp every worship service.  Camping ministries is a huge part of our faith formation for our church—I have a colleague who likes to say that it is easier to grow closer with God in the five days at camp than any other time.  The removal of distractions, the dedication to spiritual disciplines, the simple yet profound impact of just having fun, it’s what makes camp, well, camp.

It is this love of camp that led our staff to decide to hold an all-church retreat at Canyon Camp November 3-4th.  We will all arrive down in the Canyon Saturday morning and depart following our own worship service Sunday morning.  The focus for the retreat will be connecting to God through nature and growing closer with your fellow Edmond First siblings.

Cost for meals for the retreat will cost $30 per person, and we have a few different sleeping options ranging from the beautiful Hardt Lodge, the brand new cabins, or, for our more adventurous folk, tent camping!  The break down of costs per person are as below:

Tent camping (must bring personal tent)
     $5 per person (plus $30 per person for meals)
Bunk in Cabin
     $30 per person (ages 1-7 $20) (plus $30 per person for meals)
Single in Hardt Lodge
     $60 (plus $30 per person for meals)
Double in Hardt Lodge
     $40 per person (plus $30 per person for meals)
Triple in Hardt Lodge
     $35 per person (plus $30 per person for meals)
Quad in Hardt Lodge
     $32 per person (plus $30 per person for meals)

I pray that you would consider coming to the all-church retreat.  Registration can be found on the church website at  If you have any questions, please email me at
