The Mother/Daughter Retreat is a weekend for 6th through 12th grade girls and their mothers. Besides offering an opportunity for them to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this retreat helps them to focus on various topics, such as purity, self-image, and who they are in Christ. The retreat begins on Friday and ends after lunch on Saturday. Quiet times for moms and daughters, a hayride, a campfire, worship services, and break-out sessions are included. This event is an opportunity for mothers and daughters to spend some quality time together and with the Lord.
Fathers and sons of all ages enjoy this retreat. It begins on Friday with a hot dog roast around the campfire and an optional camp-out in tents. Saturday is full of fun with free time to enjoy your choice of putt putt, board games, basketball, nature trails, softball, volleyball, horseshoes, or washers. There are also scheduled activities which include archery, group games, riflery, and canoeing. In addition, fathers and sons will enjoy good food, devotion times, and fun on the High Ropes course.
The Preteen Retreat is for boys and girls in grades 1-6 and is a great way for first-time campers to get a taste of what summer camp is like. It begins on Friday evening and ends on Saturday after lunch. Worship services, time at the Snack Shack, a special time for entertainment, and outdoor activities such as archery, riflery, canoeing, and various sports round out this action-packed retreat.
This event offers wonderful meals, an outstanding speaker, an inspirational worship leader, door prizes, and little “perks” to make ladies feel special. It is a great time for fellowship with your own church family, as well as a time to meet new friends. It is a great time to get away, be refreshed spiritually, be encouraged, and receive from the Lord through your sisters in Christ.
Our Bible Conference began many years ago as a way for pastors to prepare for the annual January Bible Study. Following that tradition, Dr. Bill Tolar, retired Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary professor, still teaches the book of the Bible that is scheduled to be featured the following January. Anyone may attend and the event is free. The conference begins on Monday and ends after lunch on Tuesday. In addition to Dr. Tolar, there is a second guest speaker and musical worship.
