Family Retreat

Join us for “UNPLUGGED … to plug in to what matters most!”

Helping families connect to each other, inspiring them to love God and each other and encouraging parents to be the primary faith trainers in the lives of their children. (Based on Deut. 6:4-9)

Plan now to join us for this amazing weekend for families, as we spend time together eating great meals, having tons of fun, age appropriate Bible Studies and family worship experiences.  We will focus on “unplugging” from the stuff of life (all those screens and gadgets) for a weekend and refocusing our attention on what matters most for us and our families.  The weekend is for moms, dads, grandparents, children and youth.

Final Payment and Medical Release form (one per family) are due by March 31.
