    LIVE BAND

Never before in our 22 year history.
October 14-16, 2016

Get ready for an epic adventure as we retreat inside the gates at Ridgecrest.  Come expecting to worship, fellowship, sing, study, hear inspired devotions from Brian and MORE!

Spend the weekend with BFA.

Make lifetime friendships, share unforgettable experiences.

When we were planning this retreat, we didn’t want an event that people would come to and just be sung at –
yes, we are going to sing – but more importantly, we want to interact and spend time with you!

Worship and S’mores around the Campfire

We are going to have a special time of fellowship at the fire pit where we’ll enjoy s’mores and worship together around the campfire, weather permitting.  There are several rockers on the back porch to enjoy, but we encourage you to bring lawn/camp chairs or a blanket to relax on.

Recreational Activities Abound

Wait until you see the hiking trails!  Trails range from easy to moderately difficult and each affords spectacular views and scenic points.  Those who love fishing, bring a pole and take advantage of Ridgecrest Lake.  You might also enjoy a quiet time of reflection at the T.W. Wilson Prayer Garden.

Limited Availability – Off Campus Event Pass
While supplies last!
