Family Fusion Chosen

March 8-11, 2024

We invite families who have become a family through adoption or foster care to join us at Muskoka Bible Centre for our Family Fusion Chosen retreat.

You will be able to meet other families and share in your common language that is learned through shared similar experiences on this very special journey. Take a weekend away with your family to meet and connect with others who have come together through adoption and foster care. You will be able to participate in sessions that have been prepared with the purpose of engaging the entire family together. There will also be sessions of biblical teaching to encourage and refresh parents while their kids and youth enjoy their own special time to learn and have fun. During your time, you will also be able to enjoy the beautiful Muskoka scenery, take a family hike and have fun with our programmed activities and recreational amenities.

After a weekend away at MBC, your family will have a strengthened connection with each other and a deeper appreciation for time spent together. The memories made and biblical truths taught will help your own family grow to be more resilient and biblically rooted to the glory of God.
