2017 T-3 Men’ Retreat  t3mens

This September 22-24 will mark the fifthteenth time the men of St. Charles Lutheran Churches will sponsor the men’s retreat at Mark Twain State Park. The retreat has taken the name “T-3” because the activities of the weekend include golf (tees), fishing (tackle) and shooting (trap). There could be more “T’s” in the name because talk (conversing with other men from all over the area), time (opportunity to kick back and read, enjoy nature, and relax) and travel (going up to Mark Twain State Park) are also a part of this three day experience which many have found a must experience each fall. Food is a big part of the weekend, too, but we can’t think of a T for that one. Registration cost for the retreat remains just $45 which covers the housing and food costs for the weekend. It all begins on Friday evening, September 22nd, and concludes on Sunday morning September 24th. Brochures which contain all the information for the weekend are available in the church office or in the Coffee Shoppe. Visit our website at to get the full picture. Mark the date and plan to attend. All men 18 and over, or a Senior in High School are invited.
