Logan Valley Christian Retreat, Ellington, MO – Fathers and their son take an adventure together to formalize a rite of passage in healthy and biblical ways. Our goal is to help fathers communicate the following messages to their sons through a weekend full of fun and meaningful activities: “I love you unconditionally and accept you just as you are.  I pledge to be the father God intended me to be.  I challenge you to become the man God called you to be.” Sons should be between the age of 12-17.  Fathers should bring only one son on the weekend (bring the younger one next year!), so that he has his dad’s full attention.  This will be a 2 ½ day outing in the rustic Ozark foothills filled with activities designed to provide meaningful and significant encounters between fathers and sons. Cost is $160 for each father-son pair. Cost includes two nights accommodations and four meals.  All fathers are REQUIRED to attend the Fathers Training Session on Tue August 6, from 6:30 – 9:30 pm.  REGISTRATION DEADLINE is Tuesday, August 6.  Space is limited.  Full payment must be made with registration.  Register by mail or at the Information Counter.  For more information, contact Bob Pickett at 314/292-8320.  ALSO THIS YEAR:  Two Alumni Tracks – Fathers and sons that have attended a previous Legacy Weekend are invited to return to share in this adventure again.  We will have one track for sons (and their dads) in middle school and another for those in high school.  Some special activities are planned for the alumni separate from the others.

Sonrite Fathers' Training
All fathers registered for the Legacy Weekend are required to attend this training session.

Sonrite Alumni Reunion
