CEDAR LAKES CONFERENCE CENTER - Sunrise

I soon found out that being pulled out of my comfort zone was the greatest thing that could happen.

It's a place to regroup, reconnect, and rediscover myself and my relationship with God.

Retreat was me finding people who accepted me for me. No pretense, just love and acceptance.

Attending could be dangerous— you’ll be loved unconditionally, and confronted by anything you live or believe which hinders that love.

He brings each one of us there for a reason, and you leave feeling spiritually refreshed.

I met amazing Christian people who I hope to have as lifelong friends. These are people who you instantly feel a connection with and just accept you for who you are. 

A glimpse of what heaven will look like, I thought.

The LORD was very well represented there. 

I believe WSR creates that space where you can take your armor off and just be.

It provided new lenses, and ways to encounter the Lord, challenged me to be transparent and invited me on a journey with an honest and loving community that surpassed the weekend we spend together. 

How will retreat impact you?

"These people are my family, my tribe. We "get" each other, love each other, accept each other, and spur each other on to what God is doing in our lives. They are the embodiment of true community. I am SO blessed!"

"By the end of the weekend I regained some hope and healing as well as meeting great people. Since then, I have been privileged to visit some of them and take road trips. I believe the retreat helps with Hope and so much more."

"A family of people who “get it”. Community. A place where we can take off the masks, and learn to be comfortable just being ourselves. That carries over into life after camp. I’m learning to be more honest, genuine and authentic."
