WHAT’S THE MEN’S SUMMIT 2020?
This year True North Community Church will be hosting its first Men's Summit on October 2nd & 3rd! This will be a time to worship together as a community of men, get to know each other, and recharge with good food and fun activities.
In previous years, we held a Men’s Retreat at Tuscarora, PA. This year we changed things up and our hosting an in-house retreat at the Church. This allows us to still gather (socially distanced) and keep the costs down during a time when being in community has been limited and people have experienced financial hardships because of the COVID19 pandemic.

WHY AREN’T WE GOING AWAY THIS YEAR?
This year we changed things up and our hosting an in-house retreat at the Church. This allows us to still gather (socially distanced) and keep the costs down during a time when being in community has been limited and people have experienced financial hardships because of the COVID19 pandemic. We didn’t want to cancel the Retreat, so we adjusted the location (it’s now at True North Community Church) and how things are run. While you’re not sleeping in the hobbit house at Tuscarora Inn, you do get to enjoy the comfort of your own bed while still worshiping and hanging out with other men.
