The ‘Family Retreat’ is a special weekend getaway filled with fun, fellowship, teaching, and encouragement. This is a great opportunity to connect with other church families and make memories with your family that will last a lifetime.
Pinecrest is a beautiful lakeside camp hidden in the tall pines just 90 miles south of St. Louis. Its facilities include rustic yet comfortable rooms and cabins with private baths, a heated indoor pool, a large gymnasium, and beautiful lakeside chapel.
