The Mustard Seed Appeal
Matthew 13:31 He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. 32 Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.” Small donations given over time will grow our camp. Plant now!

Retreats for Men and for Women
Get away from your daily routine for a weekend in the woods at Camp LuWiSoMo’s Retreat Center, in Wild Rose Wisconsin. Come relax, renew, and re-energize while enjoying great food, fellowship, and free time with “just the guys” or “just the girls”. The weekend study will be “The Best Question Ever”, drawn from Ephesians 5:15 and developed by Andy Stanley. You will learn how to make the right choices in every decision you face by asking this one special question; it applies to every area of your life, no matter what stage of life you are in. “The Best Question Ever” will bring clarity to decisions involving your career, your finances, your friends, your family, and even your schedule. This study has immediate practical applications to help you fool-proof the rest of your life! So come, either by yourself or with friends or family members, to Camp LuWiSoMo for a weekend away that can change your perspective and your life. *note: Men’s and Women’s retreats will be held on separate weekends. Study Format: Video presentations accompanied by a study guide, followed by facilitated breakout sessions.
