Spring Thaw Retreat


In response to the recent Covid19 pandemic and the discouragement of large group gatherings, we will need to cancel the Spring Thaw Retreat for 2020.

We were really looking forward to meeting some new friends and catching up with old friends, but God has different plans for us all this spring.

We pray that everyone will take some time during the quarantine to reflect, dig into God’s Word, and seek a deeper relationship with Him through the understanding of His words to us.

In terms of refunding your payments for this program, we have emailed information to all who have registered. Please check your email and email us at with any questions you may have.

We would really love to see you all this summer! We have many summer camp programs available, and so far, those are still on!
