October 8  |  Lighthouse ONE DAY Retreat

8am-4pm  |  Bldg  C (Students Auditorium)

We’re inviting volunteers and and volunteer families to join Lighthouse Family Retreat and First Colleyville Church as we host a free one-day retreat for families living through childhood cancer in the DFW area on Saturday, October 8, 2022. Lighthouse Family Retreat has been strengthening families living through this difficult journey for over 20 years. But we can’t do it without volunteers like you!

The First Colleyville Lighthouse ONE DAY Family Retreat allows families to be served by volunteers who are dedicated to providing a break from the chaos of childhood cancer. This day focuses on having fun and reconnecting as a family. This happens through family centered activities in the morning and an afternoon where kids spend time playing and connecting with volunteers, while the parents attend a small group environment that provides a safe place to share and connect with others living through similar challenges. We invite you to serve with your whole family, as a Connect Group, as a single, or as empty nesters!

We recommend children be ages 5 and up to serve at the event.

**Mandatory Volunteer Training 

Thursday, October 6  |  6:30pm-7:30pm  |  Building C Students Auditorium
