MIT Retreat 2018

March 16, 2018 — March 17, 2018

The MIT Spring Retreat is back! 

It will be held on March 16-17, 2018 at Living River: A Retreat on the Cahaba in Montevallo. This will be a fun weekend to learn about missions and have fun enjoying God’s creation with your child. Arrive between 5:30 and 7:00 pm on Friday evening. Pizza will be waiting for you! Kids will enjoy hearing from a missionary and roasting marshmallows on Friday night. On Saturday we will canoe a portion of the Cahaba river, work on a mission project, and do a service project at the camp. We will return by 3:00 pm on Saturday. A parent is required to attend with 1 and 2 graders. 3-5 graders may attend without a parent if needed, but we strongly encourage a parent to go with every child.  The cost is $35 per person. This includes meals, lodging, and your canoe trip.  Below you will find a downloadable packing list as well as all the forms needed for this trip.  Please print, complete, and turn in the forms linked below by March 16!

Registration is now full, but if you would like to be added to a waiting list, please contact Cynthia Moss at *

*Families on the waiting list are not guaranteed a spot on the trip, but will be notified if one becomes available.
