Welcome to the second of two Family Retreats held this summer in Michigan. Located on the sandy shores of Lake Michigan, our Maranatha II 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.
