The women of Friedens UCC in Troy are definitely not strangers to DuBois Center. They’ve donated kid-sized boots for the barn and dollars for new mattresses in the rustic cabins and main camp cottages. They’ve served meals during Fall Festival and played a huge role in the remodeling of Hickory Lodge – raising funds and providing labor.
BUT, at least in recent history, they had not been on retreat at DuBois Center. They hadn’t slept in the new beds, sunk into the comfy new sofas, or savored the updated décor – until now.
This past weekend, 15 women from Friedens experienced the joy of being on retreat together. They played and prayed; they laughed, ate and sang together. They enjoyed the weather, the food, the hayride and each other’s company.
Stephanie Williams, Christian Education Director, and her team put together a wonderful program and were the guides for the weekend. If you are interested in creating a retreat for a group in your church or community, please contact DuBois Center at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202.
