Women of Calvary

Combine rest, fellowship, relaxation and fun into a weekend away and what do you get?  A life-giving Women’s Retreat at Forest Home!

Join us April 21-23, 2017 for inspiring messages, Spirit-filled worship, fire-pit conversations and more.  For those seeking adventure, go hiking, ziplining or ride the giant swing. For those seeking rest,  get a cup of coffee, curl up by the fire with a good book or get pampered with a special beauty treatment (additional cost/optional). In addition to six delicious and nutritious meals, snacks and espresso are available for purchase between meals.
