The Arise and Shine Retreat is coming up soon and registration is now open! This retreat is a great opportunity to delve into God’s Word, enjoy fellowship with your fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, and relax next to a beautiful lake set in the peaceful forests of northern Minnesota.

Each year, the Arise and Shine Retreat features several sessions that deal with topics many of us Christians in our 20s and 30s face each day. These topics include our worldly temptations, our roles as Christian men and women, our friendships and marriages, and the priorities we establish in our lives. These sessions are led by a variety of CLC pastors, teachers, and members of our congregations throughout the United States.

The theme for this year is “Confidence!” The purpose of our theme is to create or strengthen your confidence in God alone. In this post-truth age that we live in, so many have a hard time knowing what to believe. Even the Christian Church is under attack, resulting in millions who lack confidence, because their hopes lie in something other than Christ. The Lord teaches us to be confident and even to boast, not in ourselves, but in Him and His Word. Our theme this year is based on 2 Timothy 4:1-8 and will feature 5 sessions. To see more about our theme and the presenters we have lined up, check out
