Family Programs

-  family camps   -  service events -

Shared memories help families to stay together, especially when busy lives keep us apart so often. Camp is a great place for everyone to enjoy as individuals and as families. There are many ways for your family to get involved and to help support the ministry of Kuriakos.

    Have fun at camp while enriching your family worship experience!


    Join us at this retreat for families and congregations.

    Congregations are encouraged to bring their Sunday School participants and leaders.


    You'll leave Kuriakos with resources for sharing Advent with the rest of your congregation, and a plan for how to live out this season of preparation within your family.


    This retreat is intended to enrich faith and worship, providing support for practicing Advent. It's a chance for families to become involved in worship, and for congregations to share ideas. Enjoy a weekend Set Apart to be Together as your family and congregations still and settle for a season of waiting and anticipation.
