Retreat Prep Page

Thank you for choosing The Nest (Psalm 84) retreat.  The key to an effective weekend is preparation.  This page will help you pack and prepare for the upcoming retreat.  Please email or text any questions to thisisuswomen@gmail.com or 859-893-9494.

Please take time to review this communication.

Bring Luggage in Advance!  If you are planning on coming to church Wednesday night, bring your packed luggage for the retreat with you and drop it off in the Hospitality room (must have a luggage tag with your name clearly printed on it).  This will help us with space in the vans on Thursday.  Thanks.

Retreat Day!  Please plan to be in the COTR parking lot by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 8.  We need time to pack all luggage and get everyone in church vans for a 5 p.m. sharp departure.  For security reasons, we are asking all ladies to travel together to Lake Cumberland Lodge. A To Go meal will be provided when you arrive at the church. If you would rather eat your dinner prior to arrival to church you may do so as well. These “to go” bags will be for convenience and be eaten in the vans in route to the venue.

Location: We are going to Lake Cumberland State Park located at 5465 State Park Rd in Jamestown, KY 42629.  The phone number to the lodge is (270) 343-3111.

Lodge Assignments:  We will email you your rooming assignments today.  Your room number and keys will be provided upon arrival on Thursday night.

What to Bring:

Please be luggage size conscious on this retreat!  We need to be able to pack 60 women plus luggage to Lake Cumberland and back.  One small carry-on plus purse recommended. The dress code is casual.  You’ll be in a National Park, attending meetings, walking, sitting, swimming (if you like), watching nature…all items that would provide for rest and prayer.


Return Home:  We are planning on leaving the Lake Cumberland lodge around 1:15 PM and should arrive back at the church parking lot around 3:00 PM.

If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask, we’ll be at the TIU table before and after service this Sunday.  You can also email us at thisisuswomen@gmail.com or call 859-893-9494.

Blessings…TIU Leadership
