Family Reunions: Why Wait Until Summer?

Everyone knows Metigoshe Ministries is a fantastic place to have family reunions in the summer, but did you know that it is also a perfect place for winter reunions as well? This past winter our family of about 50 people gathered at the Christian Center for a weekend of fun, relaxation, visiting, eating and activity. Our group consisted of ages from 1 to 88 and everyone had a blast. How did we spend our time?

  • Games and contests for the kids
  • A “Minute to Win It” marathon for adults
  • Tubing at the Bottineau Winter Park
  • Snowmobiling in the beautiful Turtle Mountains
  • Saunas
  • Family board games
  • Find the Squirrel in the mural of the A-Frame Chapel outside the conference room (yes, there is a squirrel hidden)
  • Crafts for adults and kids
  • LOTS of visiting
  • Delicious food and lots of it

The list can go on and on. The large, wide-open spaces in the conference rooms and hallways, plus the smaller areas set up for small-group conversations and activities are absolutely perfect for families. Everyone in our group said it was a great place to gather and I am sure we will be back!
