Retreat Theme


In Colossians 3:10, Paul encourages believers to put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. As Jesus removes the decaying layers of your old self, He replaces it with something greater: A joyful and thriving life that glorifies God and empowers you to be different. 

While you lean on God to discover your new self, you will enjoy God’s creation and deepen friendships with others at a beautiful retreat location in San Bernadino. You and your family will love this retreat and activities such as swimming, ziplining, kayaking and s’moring over bonfire.

Registration opens on Sunday, June 5. Please stop by our Retreat Booth in the fellowship hall and reserve your spots!
