Health and Safety

Black Rock is committed to your health and safety!

Christian Couples Retreat in Pennsylvania Woodlands

As the team at Black Rock Retreat continues to walk through this unique time please know that we are continuing to pray for you and your ministry.  We don’t know the specific struggles that you are facing, but we can certainly relate in many ways.  You are not alone.

As reports from various health organizations, governing bodies, and local experts continue to come in, we see positive and negative forecasts predicted in equal measure.  We understand that you as a ministry must make plans based on what can be determined to be best for your members.  Please know that the health and safety of our guests is our highest priority.  In light of that we want you to know what we are doing. It is our desire to take every reasonable measure to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

We are implementing some new policies and procedures informed by the latest guidance from the CDC and state health organizations.

Black Rock Retreat will stay apprised of any recommendations of the CDC and will consider action accordingly.  Further, we may remove any safety measures listed herein once the CDC or the federal, state, or local governments deem such measures are no longer necessary.

We know you will join us in continued prayer over the next weeks and months as we both continue to prepare for your retreat, and your group’s time of seeking and growing closer to the Lord.

We are excited to see you in the coming months and are here should any questions arise!  For more specific information regarding the steps being taken in each area of ministry please see the links below.
