NW Singles Plan Annual Retreat

Singles from all over the Northwest plus California and Canada come to MiVoden for a spiritual, fun weekend in the sun reconnecting with old friends and meeting new friends.

Last year Lee and Margie Vendon were the spiritual mentors of the weekend, with Vendon’s series titled, “What a Friend We Have in Jesus."

The weekend is a spiritual weekend where singles can meet other singles. Activities include singles being led in activities of getting to know as many new singles by mingling at the After Hours Café playing games, singing songs, going on a moonlight boat ride, and eating snacks. Last year the singles were introduced to “speed dating." The weekend ends with a banquet and a grand march led by Wayne Hicks.

Memorial Day Weekend Singles Retreat is known for its spiritual emphasis. One man who attended the weekend retreat for the first time stated, “This must be a little of what heaven must be like, where everyone is a friend and uplifts Jesus."
