Are You Planning a Church Retreat?

Posted by Suzie Lane at

Retreats are excellent settings for growing intergenerational relationships.

And, now we have a BRAND NEW resource in our All God’s Children series that is designed for your retreat!


Church programs often separate people by age for education and fellowship activities. A retreat is a unique extended event designed to set aside time for spiritual growth where we leave our usual routine and settle into God’s presence for personal growth, spiritual solace and strengthening relationships. It is a time to surround ourselves with love and grow deeper in our journey with God.

All God’s Children: The Church Family Gathers for Retreat is designed for generations to learn and grow in faith together. All ages study God’s Word together and participate in new ways to pray, sing and worship. By its design, a retreat provides opportunities to eat together, visit with one another, enjoy games or recreational activities and to be away from the ordinary. Retreat can take place at a retreat center, the church, or any location that has retreat accommodations.

Retreat theme is Every Day with God’s Word in My Heart. Resource includes complete instructions for an effective retreat and 5 multi-activity sessions.

  • Session 1: When I am Afraid (Psalm 56:3)
  • Session 2: When I Need Courage (Joshua 1:9)
  • Session 3: When I Compare Myself to Others (Psalm 139:14)
  • Session 4: When I Face a Difficult Decision (Philippians 4:13)
  • Session 5: When I Don’t Know What to Do or Say (Proverbs 3:5-6)
