Parish Retreat | October 27 - 29



Come join us in the Blue Ridge Mountains to deepen relationships with each other and our Father through spending a weekend together! Take this opportunity to dive deeper into the Redeemer community in a beautiful and fun setting. Whether you love hiking, apple picking, fishing, horse riding, bird watching, or just sitting on a porch having good conversation, there will be plenty of activities to enjoy with others. Each day of the retreat will involve worship, teaching, and free time to take advantage of everything Graves Mountain Lodge has to offer.

Some practical notes: 

All meals/beverages will be provided. Feel free to bring nonperishable snacks. Lodging will be one couple or two singles (same gender) per room. Each room has two beds.

All nursing babies are welcome on the retreat, but we ask that parents find childcare in Richmond for all other children.

Please pack comfortable, warm clothing and active footwear for the weekend (mountain+fall=crisp). 

Graves Mountain Lodge is a little under two hours away, just north of Charlottesville. Transportation is on your own, but a group will meet at 3:45 pm at Veritas School in Northside to caravan together.
