16th Annual SCAPC Men’s Retreat!


The Retreat will take place Friday, March 10 through Saturday, March 11, in Pass Christian, MS. We begin with happy hour (but of course) at 5:00 pm on Friday and conclude with communion on Saturday, breaking camp at 1:30 pm. Five church families have graciously offered their beautiful homes for our stay.

Optional Golf Outing

There will be an optional golf outing at The Oaks Country Club in Pass Christian…a PGA sanctioned event (Preacher’s Golf Association).  You will be able to pay the additional charge at the Pro Shop. Contact Don Frampton at don@scapc.org if you wish to participate.


Our own Fred Lyon, teacher extraordinaire, will help us do some biblical and theological thinking, using Beyond Belief by Elaine Pagels. Resources:

Introduction to Readings
The Gospel of Thomas
Chapter Two – Gospels in Conflict
Questions on Thomas


Registration is limited to 28. Cost is $100 which includes 3 housing, meals, and snacks. Contact Bonnie Shoemaker at bonnie@scapc.org, 897-0101, ext. 112. Your check, made out to SCAPC, is your confirmed registration.
