2021 Men's Retreat
Life was a lot different 15 years ago. Back then we used maps. Now we use apps. Most cameras had film. Today cameras are in our phones. Cars ran on gas. Now many run on batteries. But it’s not just the practical objects that have changed. People have job titles that didn’t exist 15 years ago. And many of the job titles from 15 years ago don’t exist today. Then there’s culture. And life in general. We email 24/7. Our kids are growing up faster. And the change is only stepping up pace. Artificial intelligence, anyone? Robots? Genetics? Change can be dizzying. It can be stressful. And it can keep us up at night. But does it have to?
Thriving in Change
We’ll explore important parts of life that are bombarded by change. Career, finance, being a Dad and culture change. And look at what it means to practically take comfort in the changelessness of Christ (Hebrews 14:8).
Like every year, there will be plenty of time to hang out with other men for social time and activities like archery. Join men of all ages who want God to speak to their lives in the midst of today’s challenges.
The OSWLC 2021 Men’s Retreat will be held at Marlu Ridge, a rustic retreat on Catoctin Ridge, in Maryland.
Just 30 minutes north of Leesburg, it boasts spectacular tri-state views that include the Potomac River and Washington. This year, the retreat will be in the Lodge which offers comfortable accommodation.
The retreat offers an opportunity to step out of the rat race to enjoy good company, conversation and the fresh mountain air.

Past Men's Retreats
2019 Men's Retreat – April 26 to 28
Theme: After Easter
Co-Leaders: Jim Kane and John Keppel
Easter is the high point of our Christian faith. In His resurrection from the dead Jesus Christ fulfilled God’s promise to break the power of evil, sin and death. Jesus in His resurrection is the first fruit of the new creation, which God promised from the beginning of time. Those who believe in Jesus Christ and are baptized share in this new creation and have put on eternal life.
“Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life." (Romans 6:3-4)
The theme After Easter explored how we can daily live out our faith in Jesus Christ and live out the new life that He has won for us.
