The Serene Florida Venue for your Church Group Retreat
A church is a wonderful place to meet friendly people and become part of a larger community. While meeting for church every week is great for most occasions, sometimes it’s necessary to breathe some fresh air into the routine. When we go through the motions every day, it can be easy to forget there’s a wonderful and wide world out there full of beauty and majesty.
Church members looking to set up trips for their congregation will find that a group retreat is the perfect solution. Getting out into nature can be a spiritually rejuvenating experience for all involved as well as a bonding experience for the group. Practicing your faith doesn’t always have to be a serious affair, getting away for a church retreat is a great way for everyone in your congregation to have fun and get to one each other better.
Orange Springs Retreat Center is the perfect home for a church weekend and week-long retreats. A serene 100-acre retreat center in the gentle rolling hills on the edge of Florida’s Ocala National Forest and on the white sandy beach shores of a private spring-fed lake.
Your church will have exclusive access and will be able to use the entire venue during your retreat. All meals are provided by our retreat center staff. There are a number of meeting rooms of different sizes that can be used for services, lectures, worship, break-out sessions, or even crafting. There is a theater and lecture room, equipped with an overhead projector for movies or presentations. All buildings are heated and air conditioned for year-round conditions.
The beautiful Florida weather can allow all types of possible group activities including swimming in our pool and lake, canoeing, paddle boating, or kayaking. Our wide open sports fields for team games as well as indoor/outdoor basketball courts and 4 tennis courts are a great venue for these group retreat activities. We can also arrange facilitation of our high and low ropes courses to meet your retreat group’s leadership development and team building needs.
