January 2-4, 2020, Eastmont Students will travel to CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE, for Winter Retreat. In recent years, our group has attended conferences with thousands of students for Winter Retreat. This year, however, we offer a change of pace as we will spend the weekend with our own group, worshiping and growing in love with Christ and one another as a church group.
The exact times and arrangements will be posted as soon as all activities, lodging, and travel arrangements are confirmed. The information below should help to provide a glimpse of all that awaits our students at Winter Retreat 2020.
We will again charter a bus and carry an additional church bus (if necessary). We will depart the church early Thursday, January 2nd. And will return to Eastmont the evening of January 4th. Exact times and travel details will be provided once all travel arrangements are in place.
The group will stay at BODE, a hotel in downtown Chattanooga comprised of multi-bedroom apartment-style rentals. Our group will occupy two floors of this trendy hotel where we will spend time together in worship and small group Bible study. This setup will also allow our chaperones to prepare several meals so as to limit additional costs for students.
Chattanooga is a city that boasts several opportunities for entertainment and fun. During our time in the city, we will “SEE ROCK CITY” and visit RUBY FALLS. And since we aren’t all in shape to actually climb a mountain, we will do the next best thing and ride the INCLINE railway up the mountain and back down (72% grade slope). During free time the hotel has ping pong tables and other table/group games available to the guests.
Several group meals will be prepared and served by our Eastmont chaperones during this trip. Students will, however, be required to purchase a few meals on their own. Once we know our exact schedule and times for the activities listed above, we will know exactly which meals we can prepare and which need to be purchased. Stay tuned.
