Moms & Daughters Retreat

Our goal for the weekend is for you to deepen your relationship with each other and the Lord through new activities, workshops, Biblical teaching, worship, meeting new friends, and so much more.

May 1-3

Moms and Daughters is an annual retreat focused on strengthening relationships with each other and with the Lord.  The weekend is geared toward moms and daughters in grade school (K-8), but aunts, grandmas, friends, sisters and daughters of all ages are welcome to attend.

We invite you to join us on Friday for activities and a large group session (complete with singing, large group Bible messages and silly games).  Stay through Saturday for workshops, more worship sessions, free time together, and a themed party.  And leave Sunday with memories that will last between you and your daughter (or mom).

We strive for a culture of grace and kindness.  We know that this group is all a bunch of humans trying our best.  We want this weekend to be excellent, but we also want to allow space for relationships, for trying new things, for recharging, and for growing with God.  We think you’ll really love it.

Weekend Theme

Weekend Theme: Everlasting

James 1:17 (NCV)

“Every good action and every perfect gift is from God. These good gifts come down from the Creator of the sun, moon, and stars, who does not change like their shifting shadows.”

Even though so many things around us are constantly changing, God never does. God’s goodness is Everlasting. He will always continue to be just who He promised to be.
