What’s this all about?
There’s just something about water. It’s cleansing, renewing, and brings growth.
What do you get when you take a hundred spirit filled women to the beach, put them up in beach houses and have church on the beach every night?
You get revival.
Amazing is the only way to describe what we’re going to experience on this trip. Each retreat is special, each retreat is needed. But in my opinion this is a time to revive. Water, gentle breezes, music, friendships, and lots of Jesus will make this the best THREE days you’ve ever spent at the beach.
More on room details…
The king rooms and queen rooms are for a MAXIMUM of two guests. When you purchase the room you can bring a guest and split the cost, or keep it for a private room. Due to strict regulations from the homeowner we will NOT allow more than the designated number of people in each room. No exceptions.
There are two king rooms that have bunks in them and have a maximum occupancy of four people. The bunk BEDROOM is for three people, not to be CONFUSED with A BUNK. There is actually a bedroom that has bunks in it. It’s private and isn’t considered one of “the” bunks. It’s a bedroom. It’s small but adequate. There is a full mattress on the bottom and a twin on top. It would work for three family members or close friends.
The King room with two additional bunks is perfect for family members as well. It’s a great room for best friends too!!
We will not be placing roommates together for this trip. We recommend that all singles without a roommate sign up for a bunk. They are roomy and comfortable.
Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;
