yellow daffsSpring is a wonderful time to get away and spend some time with God. At ALR, our spring retreat, which will be held April 20 - 22 this year, is always well attended. You'll enjoy the beautiful setting of Fort Flagler this time of year -- the trees are blooming, the daffodils are out, and there's new life everywhere. After a long, cold, winter, it's great to be able to spend a weekend in a beautiful setting, listening to God's voice and enjoying some quiet time before the business of summer begins.

This retreat will be a continuation of our 25th anniversary celebration. It's actually our 50th retreat (two per year), and while we don't plan on deviating from the norm (here's a typical weekend schedule), we'll most likely take some time to share memories and thank the Lord for the blessing that ALR has been to so many over these past 25 years.

We had no idea back in 1986 when we did the first ALR, that it would last so long and become such a large part of our lives. The key, I believe, has been the simplicity. We have a basic goal: to provide a place for people to meet with God. We don't have a special speaker, or any organized activities; there aren't any workshops or seminars; just good food, great fellowship, and ample time to be alone with God.

It's been the same for 25 years. We make it simple, and plan to keep it that way.

So if you're feeling a need to get away and spend some time with your creator, register today and we'll see you at ALR in April.
