Aiden's Place came about from the love of the outdoors and nature that Aiden passed on to us. This gift he shared has become our place of peace and comfort.
Our retreats are a warm space of prayer, understanding, and love.
Bereaved parents come for fellowship, understanding, and rest with others who have had to walk the path of living without one of their children.
It is our hope that no parent should have to navigate this path alone. Financial burden should never be a reason to to miss this opportunity. Contact us about available scholarships.
More information on our upcoming retreat, Nov. 6-8
Our time together will provide comfort, hope and a strengthened relationship with Jesus Christ as He is our only true source of Hope. Throughout the weekend, we will discuss and work through God’s word and how it relates to the tragedy that we are living with.
Discussions will be facilitated by other bereaved parents and in addition, we will break up into groups so the Mothers and Fathers can have an opportunity to talk of their individual struggles and needs and to draw strength from each other. Our structured time together will have the pastoral support our our Pastor, Jamey Green and the head of our Women's Ministry, Terri Broome. They both have such a passion for our grieving hearts and we are blessed to have their support and presence at the retreat.
Some of the most precious time will be spent simply speaking to each other of our experience, our difficulties and our children. We now feel and speak a language that only we understand and being with other parents who feel the pain that we do is an incredible blessing that is hard to put into words.
This special weekend will close with a catered breakfast and small “church” service right in the mountain home! This will leave us with a fresh Word from God, renewed faith, new relationships and a lighter heart. We will leave knowing we are not alone, but have a God who loves us and hears us and that we have other parents to share this unwanted journey with.
We understand that taking the step to participate in a retreat like this can be frightening and difficult. Please know that you will be among those that understand this path more than anyone. Know that you will be able to safely speak your truth and your experience without fear of judgement or misunderstanding. Know you will leave here different than when you came.
REGISTRATION BUTTON WILL OPEN ON SUNDAY AUG. 9, 2020
