Family Retreat


Family retreat has been canceled.

Joshua 24:15

Helping families navigate family life and go against the flow of the culture by heading upstream with biblical conviction, inspiring them to love God and each other and encouraging parents to be the primary faith trainers in the lives of their children. Challenging each family to declare, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

April 17-19, 2020  at Camp Tejas Retreat Center

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 be looking at Joshua 24 and the challenge to choose this day who we will serve; whether the gods of this world or the Lord God Almighty. The weekend is for moms, dads, grandparents, children and youth.

Registration at Camp Tejas will begin at 6:30 pm Friday. Plan to arrive no later than 7:30 pm. Each family is responsible for their own transportation. The retreat will end after lunch on Sunday.

Register beginning January 5 through March 29, 2020.
