This Page is Getaway Planning Central!

The mission: Escape the chaos with your church family by getting away this summer to beautiful Lake Geneva. 

August 16-18 is our first annual All-Church Summer Getaway. A weekend filled with relaxation and fellowship,
fun and games, and good old-fashioned time together awaits us!

Registration is closed, but that means the adventure is just beginning. Add this page to your favorite bookmarks; this is where we'll be posting all kinds of fun, interesting and vitally important information as the weekend approaches.

Make a Payment toward Registration Fees

Paid only a portion of your registration fees? No worries, you can pay the rest now or a little at a time for the next couple months. Either way, all monies are due by Sunday, July 28, 2019.


Diligent, friendly gnomes are busy matching registrations with rooms at Conference Point Center, where we'll be gathering in August. Once the first wave of logistics around rooms, meals and activities has been worked through, we'll be in touch to finalize these things with you. So, keep an eye out for ongoing communication.

  • Deluxe Rooms

    These rooms are a little nicer, all are air-conditioned, and most have a private half- or full bathroom in the room.

  • Standard Rooms

    These are the "normal" rooms. They mostly have A/C (some don't). Some have private bathrooms, but most don't. If you don't have a private bathroom, it just means you and a few other folks are sharing one right down the hall.

  • Rustic Rooms

    Some rooms are a little older or run down. The are "rustic." There are also rustic cabins on the grounds. Again, some rustic rooms have A/C, but most don't. Also, you may have to trudge outside to a bath house, like you would at a campsite. But if you're used to tent-camping, these are a great upgrade!

  • Camping

    You can camp at nearby beautiful Big Foot Beach State Park (or for that matter, in your own house - it's <1 hr away), and save a ton of cash. Bring your own tent, camper, or whatever. You must make your own reservation with the State Park to reserve your site there (or wherever you're going to stay). The money you pay for the retreat is for meals and activities. Definitely, the cheapest way to get away.

Is this weekend for me?

This weekend is not for families only. 

Young, old, single, married, kids or not… This weekend is for you! 

We’ll be spending the weekend at Conference Point Center (CPC) – a peninsula jutting out into Lake Geneva, WI from the west. It’s less than an hour from church, 10 minutes from downtown Lake Geneva, absolutely gorgeous, and ready to be invaded by the Life Bridge family!

We’re not packing the schedule with loads of activities. 

This isn’t a conference or a seminar.

If you want to hear someone talk all weekend, this isn't the place for you.

It’s a fun, relaxing getaway – a place to hang out with your church family, rekindle old friendships, and maybe make some new ones. No child care or dedicated children’s programming will be provided. There’s fun for everyone, but fun we’re hoping we can all do together.

Want to Extend the Fun?

Oh, and one more thing... If you want to maximize your time away with your Church family, there's an EXTENDED version of the retreat, which starts at 10am Thursday and runs through Sunday noonish. The additional time will be really low key; just a great time for hanging out. If you're interested, select "Extended" on your registration form.


Well, primarily, the goal is to hang out together. The schedule is "packed" with free time! There are only a few optional activities planned, and even those are ... well, optional. This weekend is about just being together, not about racing

from one thing to the next. 

But that said, here a few of the things we have planned, just in case you want more than a book on the beach

or a hike in nature...
