Frequently Asked Questions

1)  What does the entire cost include?

The cost includes lodging, breakfast on Sunday morning, and materials associated with the conference.  Transportation, Saturday lunch and dinner, Sunday lunch, and other incidental costs of the hotel are on your own.

2) What time does the weekend begin and end?

The event starts on Saturday, January 23rd at 9:45 am at the Hyatt Regency in Hauppauge, NY (1717 Motor Parkway Hauppauge, NY 11788 631-784-1234).  The event ends at 4 pm on Sunday, January 24th.

3) How will transportation be handled?

There is no access via public transportation to the site.  If you need a ride to the site, please email akandathil@newlifefellowship.org.  If you have space in your car and are willing to provide rides, please email akandathil@newlifefellowship.org and indicate how many you are able to fit into your vehicle.  Information about transportation arrangements will be sent to you on the week of the retreat (Tuesday, January 19th).

Directions from Queens:

Long Island Expressway (495) East to Exit 57 (Veterans Memorial Highway). Turn left at the light onto Motor Parkway. Continue on Motor Parkway and the hotel is on the left.

4) What will the housing arrangements be like?

There will be two people per hotel room with two double beds.  The rooms are like a normal hotel room with a private bathroom.

You can request a roommate upon pre-registration.  If you do not request a roommate, one will be assigned to you (it will be someone of the same gender).

If you’d like to add an additional person to the room, you certainly can, but keep in mind that every individual will be charged the full amount for registration.

If you would like a single room, the cost is $140.

5) Which meals are included in the registration fee?

The only meal that is covered in the registration cost is breakfast on Sunday morning.  There is a nearby strip mall with several restaurants (pizza place, Subway, Chinese buffet, sushi, deli, etc) that one can drive to for meals for Saturday lunch and dinner, and Sunday lunch.  A list of nearby restaurants will be provided at the orientation.  We recommend bringing at least $25 for meals.

6) Which topics will be covered at this retreat?

Topics will include: the gospel and its implications for our entire lives, holistic spirituality that allows God to work in every area of our lives, and building your own rule of life.

7) What other amenities are available?

There is an indoor pool and gym on site.

8)  Is there childcare available for the event?

No.  If you are parents of babies that are nursing age, you can come to this.  Parents of children up to 4 years old can come as well, but keep in mind that one parent will have to be with the child at all times during the sessions (and outside the main room if the child is disruptive).  We are hoping to create a quiet atmosphere for contemplation and prayer.

9)  If I have made a deposit, when do I pay the rest of my fee?

You will be making the rest of your payment upon registering on Saturday morning. Please pay cash or check, and make checks out to New Life Fellowship.  Any incidentals you incur will be paid directly to the hotel on your own.

10)  Are commuters welcome to this event? If yes, what is the cost?

Yes, commuters are welcome for a cost of $60.  We highly recommend staying overnight because of the “retreat” feel we want to create in getting away.
