Women's Retreat

Encouraging Women Through Faith, Fellowship, And Fun

Renew

Be renewed at the Women's Retreat with opportunites to have fun and connect with women from your church or group of friends

Restore

Restore your faith with powerful messages from speakers, topical workshops on women's issues, and spirit-filled worship

Refresh

Refresh yourself with awesome activities, great food, good conversation, and a chance to disconnect from everyday life at Grace Adventures

Safety Is Our #1 Priority

We think, this year more than ever, that women need to take a retreat.

After being away from our church family, extended family, and friends for so long, we all need a chance to come together and support one another.

With guidance from the CDC, State of Michigan, and our local Health Department, we have an excellent plan in place to minimize risk to guests and staff, adhere to regulations, and still maximize opportunities for women to connect together.
