‘My Cup Overflows’

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You annoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell inthe house of the LORDS forever. Psalm 23:5-6

Come gather with us as we explore the ‘cup’ of our life that God created us as. Participants are invited to bring a cup special to them for use during the weekend and as part of our reflections.

FLASH Lead by Rev. Gwen Ament

FLASH stands for Faith, Learning and SHaring. This is a time when people gather together in fellowship and are able to explore their faith together. The retreat will have an overarching theme for participants to reflect on during their time at camp.

Minister, Rev. Gwen Ament A graduate of Knox College’99, Rev. Gwen came to this congregation from St. Andrew’s Saskatoon in July 2010. Through involvement with Refugee Sponsorship, the local Ministerial Association, and promoting the work of Reconciliation and Healing with First Peoples, Rev. Gwen ministers not just within our congregation but in the broader community at large. Her offie door is always open and she is happy to schedule pastoral visits.


When you register you’ll be able to select your preferred accommodation spaces in your retreat form. We do everything in our power to ensure a comfortable stay for everyone! The room on the left is of a standard room in MacDonald Lodge, a standard room in the Nest has the same number/ style of beds. The photo on the right shows a Nest Family room, with six bunk beds and a bathroom where each element has it’s own little room (the sinks are separate from the shower etc.). Both options have climate control in the room, wifi, dressers, desks, lamps, and power bars.  The differences and advantages of each space are noted in the chart below!Guests are responsible for brining their own linens.
