The congregation of Grosse Pointe United Methodist Church has journeyed together to Lake Louise Christian Community in Boyne Falls, Michigan for an all-ages time of fellowship and fun for well over twenty years.

Activities just out the door include sledding, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing, while Boyne and Petoskey are mere minutes away with yet other activities awaiting. Of course there are always books, puzzles, games, and general hanging out by the blazing fireplace to occupy us between delicious meals.

One of the traditions is the "Really Big Shew" each year, and we consistently amaze one another with the talents we bring with us. There’s generally a session on a spiritual topic on Saturday morning, and there’s always a great worship service on Sunday morning.

Frankly, it’s everything you hope it might be … and more.
