These creative retreats are open to all who wish to scrapbook, craft, quilt, or sew in a community setting. A full 6 or 8 foot table with power will be provided for every guest. Cutting and ironing stations will be available in the quilting/sewing work area.
Working on your projects next to friends, new and old, is a great way to fellowship and live into our calling as co-creators with our Creator. Enjoy the peaceful setting in the woods at Amigo. Weather and season permitting, enjoy a guided hike, a pontoon ride, bird watching, a campfire, and kettle corn, among many other amenities. Devotions/blessings at meals and an optional, casual Sunday morning worship service will also be available. These retreats will run from Friday through Sunday. As usual, Thursday and Monday are available as add-ons. Register here!
MCC Bike Michiana:
Bike Michiana is a cycling fundraiser for an MCC project. Each day’s ride, on Saturday and Sunday, will begin and end at Amigo Centre, with Saturday’s ride being approximately 50 miles, and Sunday’s ride having approximately 50 and 35 mile options.
Bike Michiana riders will raise money in 2023 for MCC’s newest kit – Dignity Kits. Dignity kits are distributed through schools and orphanages where sanitary supplies are not readily available allowing young women to stay in class when they have their period. The kits include supplies and fleece pads that are washable, reusable, and durable enough to last for a year or longer. These kits help to relieve the financial burden on vulnerable families, giving young women the opportunity to complete their education and reducing the risk of early marriages.
