Welcome to the second of two Family Retreats held this summer in Michigan. Located on the sandy shores of Lake Michigan, our Maranatha I Family Retreat is held on the campus of the beautiful Maranatha Conference Center. The seaside theme is repeated throughout the campus and virtually all facilities are barrier free – the staff at Maranatha love our families, and you will feel at home and welcomed to this retreat organized by the Joni and Friends/Chicago team.

100 miles west of the capital, Lansing, Michigan / 190 miles east of Chicago
