MOTH Retreat

Moms of the Heart provides a retreat every other year for adoptive and foster moms from all campuses in an effort to provide deeper connection and encouragement than what we can achieve in our monthly meetings.

Our last retreat was Mar 31–Apr 2, 2023 at the beautiful Hunt Retreat Center. Our theme was Courageous Love. Gathering together offers us the opportunity to connect our hearts, process through the year and reconnect with Biblical Truths that transform our lives.

We look forward to what our 2025 MOTH Retreat will hold!

The Crossing

The Crossing is a quarterly lunch at the Loop Campus that provides an opportunity for families to break bread together, meet the Legacy 68:5 staff, make connections with volunteers, and play!

The Big Event

The Big Event occurs annually every Fall to connect adoptive and foster families and Legacy 68:5 volunteers from all campuses for a time of food and fun with friends!

Legacy Dad's Club

Legacy 68:5 Dad's Club invites current and future Dads in our community to come to The Loop for dinner, fellowship, and a word of encouragement. Our goal is to connect and equip you as foster, adoptive and kinship fathers by providing practical tools on relevant parenting topics unique to your journey.
