Be sure to check back regularly to get our latest news updates.

When it comes to our world, it’s always a good time to check in with how we can love it back for providing us with a home all these years.

Friday, July 30 is considered International Day of Friendship. Celebrate with these ways you can show the people you love the most just how much they mean to you.

While normally “back to school” is reserved for children, it turns out that this time of year is important for every age. That’s because you’re never too old to continue learning, and it can help you live up to your true potential in everyday life.

Just because it’s the middle of the year doesn’t mean it’s too late to set and achieve big things yet this year. While reevaluating your existing goals, throw in some hard-to-reach newer goals and set your sights high.

Life happens, and focusing on all aspects of your health is easier said than done. Take small steps in each area to start building solid habits!

Making a difference in a child’s life sounds like a daunting task, but small acts of kindness can add up and make a huge difference. Start small, like an hour spent volunteering or mentoring.

Inspiration is a fickle thing. It comes and goes with little warning. The good news is, you can always reignite inspiration when you’re feeling uninspired.

Reconnect to a community of faith. Rekindle your passion for mission.
Renew your spirit of solidarity.

Schedule: Friday, July 30 at 6:30 PM to Sunday, August 1 at 12:00 PM.

Cost: $175 covers two nights in the retreat center, three meals on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday. And Marimba dancing!! Financial assistance available.

Reserve your spot by July 16 with Charlie at or 531-218-6354.

We ask that all attendees be fully vaccinated by July 16 in order to attend.
