LOGOS 2018 Winter Retreat

Posted by on Oct 3, 2017

LOGOS Winter Retreat
Speaker: Rev. Harry Zekveld
January 4-6, 2018
Kettunen Retreat Center, Tustin, MI

Moving on to Solid Food

Sometimes the Bible tells Christians to be babies. Other times the Bible tells Christians to stop being babies. In the book of Hebrews, we are being told the latter: the Lord commands us to get past baby food and move on to solid food. While our (church) culture happily settles for – and even celebrates – spiritual immaturity, God calls us to press on toward spiritual maturity. Only then can we become skilled in the word and discerning in our world.

Lord willing, Rev. Harry Zekveld, pastor of Providence United Reformed Church in Strathroy, ON will lead our discussion on this topic January 4-6, 2018 at the Kettunen Retreat Center in Tustin, MI. Single young adults ages 18-30 attending college or working are highly encouraged to register. The retreat will begin at 6 p.m. on Thursday, January 4 with our traditional pizza dinner and conclude with our final session and lunch on Saturday, January 6, D.V.

A special aspect of this year’s retreat is that this will be the 20th anniversary of our first-ever LOGOS retreat held at the same location in 1998! To celebrate this special occasion, the RYS Board has decided to give a free commemorative t-shirt to everyone attending LOGOS this coming year. To register for the winter retreat, please go to our website at The registration fee is $215.00 (U.S.), which covers lodging for two nights, five meals, snacks and the program. Friday dinner is on your own. Payment must be made online at time of registration.

Preferred housing (hotel-style rooms) will be reserved for our first paid registrants. The other rooms are also comfortable and contain private bathrooms. You will appreciate the relaxing retreat atmosphere of Kettunen! Recreational options include sledding (weather-permitting, bring your own sleds), bowling ($10.00 cash for two games, shoes and a soda), skiing at the Caberfae Peaks Ski Resort (we plan to obtain a discounted lift ticket, cost tba) or sight-seeing and shopping in nearby Traverse City. Online registration deadline is December 14. Registrations after that date (until our final registration deadline of December 21) will incur a $40.00 late fee. Questions, please contact RYS Director Ed DeGraaf at (616) 667-0694 or at
