Dayspring Retreat Center


Dayspring welcome

Dayspring Farm is a retreat center owned by Seekers and the other faith communities who are part of Church of the Saviour. It’s a place of reflection and renewal for many folks, including those of us in Seekers Church. We gather there for our semi-annual community overnights, attend silent retreats and participate in workshops and events at Wellspring Center. Click here to see more.

This labyrinth, tucked into the crest of a wooded hill, invites me to slow down, to rest on the bench placed in memory of Linda Strand, who was a member of Seekers Church.

Jenny's Tree at Dayspring Jenny’s Tree was planted in 1977 by Doug and Joan Dodge, in memory of their infant daughter. It shades a bench above the Lake of the Saints.
