Church Family Retreat

October 8th – 10th, 2022 | Redwood Christian Park


We’re excited that you’re considering attending this year’s family retreat! With the pandemic we haven’t had a retreat since 2019 so we are really looking forward to be able to resume holding this annual event. We pray that God will work through this weekend to help you draw closer to Him and also to the SFBC community. Whether you’re new to SF Bible or been with us for years, the annual retreat is chance to make new friends and catch up with old ones. We hope you’ll join us for a fantastic time – a time of rest and relaxation, a time of fellowship and encouragement, a time of growth in our relationship with God as we study His Word and spend time with Him.
