On Friday, September 19th through Sunday, the 21st, congregation members travelled to the United Methodist Church's Camp Quinipet on Shelter Island to attend the 2nd Annual Church Family Retreat.  We gathered at Asbury House, which can house up to 25 persons, to conduct bible studies, play games, share meals, sit by the campfire telling stories, watch movies, and have a Sunday morning service on the porch.  In other words, take some time out of our busy world to share our lives with one another in what is called 'koinonia' in Greek, meaning Fellowship in the Gospel.

Our trip home was spent stopping at various farm stands enjoying the roasted corn, the caramel apples, as well as, listening to the music along with many other travellers along the North Fork of Long Island.
