Youth Harvest Retreat | October 30-31

    HARVEST 2021 


    Harvest is our fall retreat for students in grades 7-12. This is a dedicated time for fellowship and worship as we break away from our busy lives for a time of respite. There will be games, scripture lessons, s’mores, and so much more!  


    Saturday to Sunday, October 30-31. 


    The Timberlake Farm (Jim and Allyn) - 1350 Jerusalem Road, Watkinsville, GA 30677- Follow the signs into the property to arrive at the check-in station. 


    3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 30. If you haven't paid the $25 registration fee, you can do so at check-in - checks made payable to "AFUMC." This year’s Harvest will fall on the same day as the annual Georgia/Florida football game, so we’ll be hosting a gameday tailgate party starting at 3:00!
