Women’s Retreat – Ladies, take some time off to relax, meet with friends both new and ongoing, have meaningful conversations, and explore ways to deepen your relationship with Christ. This overnight retreat features insightful conversations led by a keynote speaker and options to experience our high ropes course and/or to simply relax and let God’s Spirit refresh you here in the great outdoors.
