Start off the New Year with a retreat to Crystal Springs! We’ll spend twenty-four hours together in the middle of the winter talking about God being God in all seasons while having a blast with winter activities like flashlight hikes, snow tubing, and staing cozy with warm beverages. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to connect with friends and God in a new way!

Check-in: 10 am; checkout: 10 am
