“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” - Matthew 11:28

St. John’s retreat ministry is an opportunity for various collections and generations of people to experience God’s gift of restoration through His Word, fun activities, and the people of God in life together. St. John’s offers four retreats throughout the calendar year. Our retreats seek to balance the time in study and worship as well as in recreation and activity. Each retreat gives ample opportunity for participants to benefit from applicable teaching and impactful connections made through the weekend. See below for a brief summary of each of the retreats and check our calendar and events page for more information as each approach.
