Refresh, Forest Springs’ retreat for women, is many things to many people. 

For some, it's an opportunity to unplug and relax, all while enjoying the stillness and beauty of God's creation. For others, it's a weekend filled with great conversations, laughter and encouragement. Refresh is an opportunity to step away and dig deep into God's word. We hope you will join us for a weekend of dynamic and challening Bible teaching, entertaining program options, and excellent meals.
