OCF National Capital Region—Spring Retreat


Join us 23-25 May for an enjoyable weekend at the great environment of OCF’s White Sulphur Springs Conference Center to ponder Jesus’ question to Peter, “Do you Love Me?” This powerful question can be answered many ways. Come and hear some of those answers and how they can be implemented in your life. The guest speaker for the weekend is CH (LTC) James E. Smith, USA. Chaplain Smith serves in the Soldier and Family Ministry of the Office of the Army Chief of Chaplains.

Enjoy a wonderful weekend of relaxation, fellowship, praise, worship, and spiritual growth. Let someone else do the cooking as you relax. This is a great opportunity to spend time with God, your family, and friends. A children’s program is organized depending on the number and ages of children attending. A nursery for children younger than two years old will be available. The nursery and children’s program are during the sessions only.

Date: 23-25 May
Location: White Sulphur Springs Conference Center, Manns Choice, PA
