South Church Star Island Retreat: Spiritual Deepening and Connecting

July 28, 2018 to August 4, 2018

Revs Chris and Lauren, along with the planning team, will facilitate 4 days of rest, restoration, reflection and growth on beautiful Star Island. In addition to candle lit chapels, rocking chairs, ocean and sky, we will focus on spiritual deepening and deepening relationships within our South Church community. For inspiration, see our Facebook page.

Youth Programming

Youth programming and child care will be provided each morning.

Programming fees of $10/night per person, including children under 6, are payable directly to South Church and fund our youth programming, social hour and other retreat expenses.
