The 2019 Schedule is still being crafted

The 2018 schedule is available below for you to get a feel of the types of classes we offer. Please note that this year we won’t be splitting into multiple locations, everything will be held at the LeConte Center!

2018 Schedule

Which works better for you: the early or the late track?

We know that some can’t be away from your home congregation during the weekend, and some can’t miss work during the week. To solve this problem, we offer two options: the early and the late track.

The early track starts at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday and ends at 3:30 p.m. on Friday.

The late track starts at 6:00 p.m. on Friday and ends around 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.

Whichever track you attend, you’ll receive a download link to all lessons after the retreat.
