These are tough times. If you are facing loss of hope, health, or a loved one, this retreat is for you. Are you feeling alone and isolated in your struggle, and just wish your feelings could be validated? This retreat is for you.
At the Courage to Carry On retreat, you will gain the tools to find and keep courage and confidence to carry on through any challenge from a Christian perspective. Our speaker Lori Stanley Roeleveld will reveal how you can access Christ-centered truth to help you in desolate places.
