A Riverfront Retreat


"But Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer."

-Luke 5:15

Life, even a Christian life, can be hectic. We hear this over and over from the guests of Tuscarora. They come to our grounds for a place of peace, fellowship, and refreshment away from their everyday life. Christian retreat has been a long practiced discipline of faith.

Why is it so valued? Because your heart craves it. It craves time alone with the Lord. If you are tired, worn out, and feeling defeated Jesus is calling out to you to rely on Him. To let him provide for you.

That's why we believe so strongly in this practice at Tuscarora. We are following an example set by thousands of years of believers along with Jesus Himself! He retreated to the wilderness often to spend time with His Father. Jesus often took this retreat in gardens, in deserts, along the sea, and in lonely places. He chose places that would reflect the beauty of His Father's creation.

At Tuscarora, we have the benefit of a beautiful rural setting along the banks of the Delaware River. You can glimpse the river from every spot on the grounds. During the summer it is the place for morning devotions and baptisms. During the winter, when frozen over, it provides a dazzling display of natural beauty that would humble any heart.

Today, read what the Bible says about the symbolism of rivers and waters. Glance at the Lord's beauty. It's our prayer that you would be drawn closer to the Father's heart through this digital retreat.

He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in its season and its leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers.
— Psalm 1:3
He who believes in Me, as the Scripture said, ‘From his innermost being will flow rivers of living water.’
— John 7:38
And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him.
— Matthew 3:16
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.
— Isaiah 43:2
Jesus answered her, ‘If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.’
— John 4:10
