August 23 - 25, 2024


A time of refreshment!

You’re invited to join us for a relaxing weekend getaway at Shrine Mont in Orkney Springs, VA. Together we will worship, learn, and fellowship in the restful setting of the Appalachian mountains. Our retreat weekend provides something for the whole family, with engaging speaker sessions as well as special children’s programs.

Whether you’re new and looking to connect or a long-time member who’s looking forward to our evenings of fellowship on the porch, this weekend is the perfect opportunity to deepen your relationships with God and one another.

For Your Children & Teens

While adults enjoy engaging sessions and teaching, our children (ages 6 weeks–rising 6th graders) will participate in special programming and activities developed specifically for them.

Your 7th–12th grade students will be invited to serve in the children’s program, which occurs during three out of the three large group sessions. Teens are also welcome to participate in the large group session with the adults—either option offers students a wonderful opportunity to grow spiritually and in relationship with their church family.

For questions or to volunteer with our children’s program, contact Emily Pirozzolo ([email protected]) or Melanie Janetsky ([email protected]).
