Family Retreat 2014
November 7-8, 2014
This retreat was held at Marmon Valley Farm. We were 28 people and had an amazing time! You will see from the schedule below that we had enough fun time as families, great worship, awesome food, and refreshing, yet challenging discussions. The worship was led by Matthew Deeren, and he did a fantastic job! Some of the fun things included a hay ride, horse back riding, and of course...s'mores and marshmallows around the campfire. Sara and Eileen, with the help of two pre-teens, Shana and Bridget, did such a wonderful job with the kids: They had a fun time on the farm, but also had specific activities geared towards sharing eternal truths with the little ones. During these times the adults also had time to get into some meat, discussing the newest book of Dr. James Dobson, "Your legacy: The greatest gift." It encouraged and challenged us to be sure to pass on our faith to our children within the small timeframe that we have. We received some great advice on how to go about this, and was encouraged by the fellowship and wisdom from others in the group.
