LODGING

PROVIDENCE LODGE

Address49 Atkins Loop,
Lake Junaluska, NC 28745

You may have to share a room with another person, we will try our best to put friends together as much as possible!  However, EACH PERSON will have their OWN BED.  If you are willing to bring/sleep on an air mattress that may be helpful in order to increase numbers!

PROGRAMMING

“REBOOT”
The ONE THING that doesn’t CHANGE is that everything changes. The last year was full of changes, almost as if the world has been RE-BOOTED. As we begin again, we will have some choices to make, choices about how we spend our time, choices about where we use our talents, choices about who we invest in. NOW is a great time to take a look at what has been working in our lives and what needs to be corrected! Where will God fit into your life as we move forward?

2 Corinthians 5:17
“…If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”

FUN STUFF
FEEL FREE to bring a game that you can play with others, however, we will be staying pretty busy!

TUBING
We will be traveling to Asheville on Saturday afternoon for a few hours on the French Broad River.    The river is NOT a fast moving river BUT life jackets (supplied by our tubing company: SKY TUBING) are required!  This is included in the price of the weekend!
