Renewed Retreat

Being a foster or adoptive parent can be exhausting. The "Renewed Retreat" is aimed at restoring your body, soul and spirit.  Join us for a day of fun, crafts, laughter and connection with other foster and adoptive moms who "get it"!

The morning will be a time to get to know each other through small and large group learning and sharing. During the afternoon there are several activities you can choose from including crafts (making jewelry, coasters, painting canvas'), small discussion groups (Q & A with a local therapist and essential oils and emotions) games, hiking and a "Get Up And Move Time" with a movement specialist. Cost is only $55 and includes lunch, snacks and crafts! The event is faith based and you will come away encouraged and closer to the Lord.

Purpose- The Renewed Retreat seeks to provide a day of rest, refreshment and connection for foster and adoptive moms.  Parenting children who come from backgrounds of trauma and loss can be tiring, frustrating and isolating.   Our goal is to give moms a day where they can come together, share trials and joys and receive renewal, hope and encouragement so they can return to their job of caring for the children God has entrusted into their care.
