Fall and Spring Retreats for Friends of Color

2019 Spring Retreat for Friends of Color in Ben Lomond, CA.
2017 Fall Retreat for Friends of Color in Stony Point, NY.

Each year, FGC’s Ministry on Racism Program sponsors opportunities in the Spring and Fall for Friends of Color and their families to come together to build multigenerational community through:

  • Mutual support and sharing
  • Worship
  • Exploring our Faith
  • Sharing what brought us to Friends
  • Identifying ways to support each other

Previous retreats have been held in upstate New York, the Philadelphia area, Washington DC, Chicago, and California.

This year's in-person Spring retreat has been postponed from April 17th-19th to Oct 30th-Nov 1st, 2020 due to the COVID-19/Coronavirus outbreak. It will still be held at Silver Falls Lodge & Conference Center outside of Portland, OR. Find out more here.

This year's Fall retreat will be held in North Carolina in November of 2020. Details to come... Stay tuned!
