2019 Fall Fun and Fellowship for Moms

Mark your calendars, call your friends and sign up now to join NCHE for a weekend full of fun and fellowship. This year’s moms’ retreat will take place November 8-9 at Caraway Conference Center in Asheboro, NC. Find out more about our location at www.carawayconferencecenter.com

We will gather on Friday afternoon and enjoy dinner together. After dinner, Dana McDill will lead us in an encouraging talk about rest. To wind up the evening, we have reserved the fire pit area for s’mores and conversation. Saturday will include more encouragement from our speakers, a spa craft “make and take,” and after lunch a time of just fun relaxing activities from a group hike to board games and hobby time.  Be sure and bring along your crochet, scrapbook, or favorite board game. You’ll have a chance to make new friends and maybe learn about a new pastime. Of course there will be giveaways too (who doesn’t love a prize). Nursing babies are welcome.
