Together Called 2017

TC2017 Bear Creek announcementYou don’t need another conference. You need connection; you need each other. You need rest so you can press on in what you have been together called to do.

Together Called is an opportunity to come together, a place for husbands and wives to step out of the chaos called everyday life and be encouraged, a place for us to learn and fellowship together as a couple and as a community.

Join us March 31st-April 2nd, 2017 at the beautiful Bear Creek Mountain Resort nestled on 330 acres in Berks County, Pennsylvania (approximately 90 minute drive from the Philadelphia Airport and 35 minute drive from Lehigh Valley International Airport). Be prepared to see things in a new way and be reminded of truths you have known as we seek Him together and hear from renown speakers who are right there in the chaos with you.

Nate and Sara Hagerty, renown author of Every Bitter Thing is Sweet and our very first Together Called speakers, are joining us again. We’ll also be blessed by singer/songwriters (and adoptive parents) Philip and Jessica Morlan from Seeds Family Worship; Jeff Nitz, Senior VP of Adoption and Family Services at Bethany Christian Services, and his wife Cheryl Nitz, Director of the Attachment & Bonding Center of Pennsylvania; and Carolyn Ruch of Rise and Shine Ministries…just to name a few.

Registration costs $453 for the whole shebang (two nights at the resort and meals for two). We do offer a Friday night only option ($309) for those couples who cannot leave their children for the whole weekend. We urge you, however, if at all possible, to arrange for childcare and count your pennies so that you can truly retreat and make this weekend a real getaway to invest in the two of you and, therefore, your children as well.
