Stone Church Center
Stone Church Arts and Immanuel Retreat Center

Stone Church Arts was founded by Eugene Friesen, Rev. Margaret Crane and Robert McBride in 2004. Immanuel Retreat Center was started by Gloria Mansfield and Robert Bowler in 2013. 

Both organizations offer programs in the arts, but Immanuel Retreat Center also presents residential workshops, retreats, films and quiet days in spirituality, the arts and other topics. 

Now united under a new Board, but retaining their separate names, missions and goals, they co-present workshops such as the Festival of Mandolin Chamber Music which takes place in January and June each year.
We have a variety of venues to serve your needs. Built in 1867, the church sanctuary, says cellist Eugene Friesen, "is a magnificent space, with warm acoustics and a 9-foot Steinway grand piano". The Chapel feels like a place set apart and seats up to 20 in a circle or 50 theater style. The Retreat House is elegantly simple, cozy and comfortable, and sleeps 10 or more. Currier Hall has beautiful and functional conference and dining space along with the Schattner Library. Join us for one of our concerts, retreats or workshops or rent space for your own event.
