We are Open and Ready to Serve You! - April 2, 2021

The safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff members is our highest priority. Thankfully, over the past year of Covid-19 we have remained protected and healthy as we carefully follow all government-recommended safety precautions on our campus. During the pandemic, we renovated our riverfront Miracle Manor, and in addition to immaculate all-new guest rooms, we are blessed with fresh, country air and lots of space!


Our doors are open for all services to those who choose to attend. We are monitoring updates and complying with CDC guidelines; this includes social distancing, reduced capacity in meeting and dining areas, disinfecting surfaces, and requiring regular hand sanitation. Face masks are not mandated for church attendees; however we DO recommend wearing one while indoors, whether in the sanctuary or other meeting areas and/or unable to maintain 6-foot distance.  


For those who feel safer at home, please join us ONLINE Sunday at 10 AM and Wednesday at 7 PM at www.thefamily.church or on Facebook, The Family Church at Christian Retreat.We are excited about creating new and effective ways to stay connected with our church family outside the church walls.


Above all, choose faith over fear.  And let us know if we can help.  


As a place of refuge,Christian Retreat has always been equipped to serve our community in times of crisis, fear and uncertainty, providing for peoplesspiritual and practical needs.


Thank you for your prayers as we BE the church and be the light in the darkness. We will always be here for you and are keeping you in prayer every day.

We love you,

Pastors Phil & Jannette Derstine
