The mission of Chapel Hill Men
Developing a better relationship with God, your family, and a few other men is the focus of the Men's Ministry program at Chapel Hill. As the spiritual life of the dad and husband goes, so goes the spiritual life of the family. Activities provided for the men of Chapel Hill encourage, challenge, and support men in a continual development of their faith. This is accomplished through an annual retreat, small groups, and the Spring Sizzle Steak Feed as well as through less formal activities like biking, softball, golfing, camping, and big screen sporting events.
Men's Retreat at Trout Lake Camp
Rumor has it that Viking explorers actually ended up in Minnesota while seeking out the legend of the Saturday Night Steak Fry at Trout Lake (definitely a true story). No matter if you've been making the trek to Men's Weekend every year since the days of Leif Erickson or this will be your maiden voyage, we highly encourage you to attend this year's Men's Weekend at Trout Lake. Check out this video for a promo featuring this year's speaker, as well as a few of the band members for the weekend.
New this year: High Ropes Course (in addition to all your favorites - steak, fishing, boating, zip line, wiffle ball, floor hockey, steak, dodgeball, ultimate frisbee, educational seminars covering spiritual/practical/educational topics, steak, campfires, paintball, steak, climbing wall, archery, mini-golf, steak, you get the picture...)
NOTE - when you register, choose "RUSTIC" cabins and when you get to the roommate request part of the form, write "FISH CABINS WITH CHAPEL HILL CHURCH". These are far from rustic - they're new within the past few years, with the only thing rustic being that the bathroom is a short walk away. The weekend costs $115 (before any discounts) - and please don't let finances be a hindrance - come find me or someone on staff if finances are preventing your attendance. Bonus - if you've never attended, make sure you click "First Timer Discount" as you register (it's toward the end) and take $10 off.
PLEASE EMAIL PAUL TOMMERDAHL WHEN YOU REGISTER so that he can follow-up with you as we get closer to September.

Killing Lions Men's Study/Bonfire
