Gatherings and Retreats
EUUC sponsors several off-site events, including the annual Seabeck Church Retreat, and a Summer Family Campout.
Seabeck Church Retreat
Forming friendships and having fun together
The annual church retreat is at the Seabeck Conference Center on beautiful Hood Canal. We promise a weekend of relaxation, fellowship, programs, and fun. Seabeck is an unhurried time to spend time together with family and friends, some of whom you may not yet know well. There is ample time to play games, share stories.
A typical Seabeck experience
We spend time relaxing, having fun and connecting with new and old friends. Friday evening we check in and visit with each other.
On Saturday morning we have separate programs for adults and children but with a shared theme. In the afternoon, people play games, row on the lagoon, stroll through the woods, hike to the old cemetery, or simply sit in a rocking chair on the porch and soak up the conversation and sun—we hope. Don’t forget to bring your bathing suit for the annual Polar Bear Swim on Saturday afternoon! Saturday evening we gather for the popular variety show.
Sunday morning the congregation gathers at the Chapel in the Woods for a service. Then, it’s time to pack up the cars and enjoy lunch at the Inn before heading home.
