Winter Retreat // January 12-13, 2024

The Winter Retreat has been a tradition for many years at Newburg United Methodist Church. Held in early January each year at the Lake Huron Retreat Center, the Winter Retreat seeks to start well in the new year by gathering folks together for a day and a half of scripture study and fellowship. The retreat starts on Friday afternoon and ends on Saturday afternoon. The dates for 2024 are January 12-13, 2024. At the retreat, we try to have an interesting topic to get our spiritual juices flowing at the beginning of the new year. For 2024, the retreat theme is Jesus: Prophet and Priest and King, Exploring the Lesser Known Roles of the Messiah.

Join us along the shore of Lake Huron for a time of fellowship while learning. The cost of the event includes all meals and snacks. Each room has a private bath.
