Christian Educators Fellowship (CEF) Retreat
Rest ~ Renew ~ Revitalize, Body, Mind & Spirit
February 21-23, 2010
Oak Tree Lodge, Sevierville, TN

Retreat: to withdraw; to rest; a place of restoration, a place to set aside to recuperate, regenerate and revitalize; a haven; a refuge; a sanctuary.  We need to retreat, regularly. Doing our best means being at our best and the only way to do this is to honor our needs for rest and renewal.
Imagine yourself as a jug of water pouring out your water anywhere it is needed. Eventually, the water runs out unless you take the time to replenish it.  Isn’t it time you thought seriously about recharging your batteries and filling yourself back up again? It is time for a retreat!

MeadowView Conference Center, Kingsport, TN

Jubilation 2010 is the tenth annual gathering of senior adults in the Holston Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church. The stated vision of Jubilation is to provide a ministry for senior adults, aged 55 and over, that nurtures spiritual growth, provides educational opportunities and ways to cope with life issues, promotes involvement in missions, and enhances Christian fellowship. This program was made possible from an initial grant from the Margaret Loving Trust managed by the Holston Conference Foundation, Inc. and a generous grant from Asbury, Inc.
