Our ministry understands how crazy and distracting life can be. Sometimes it's hard to feel or see God in the midst of a really fast moving society. That's why here at Smcc we welcome retreat groups year round to get away and redirect their lives on what really matters. Our staff is dedicated to helping all our groups in accomplishing that goal.
