2017 Men's Retreat, May 5-7, 2017, at Shannondale!

Shannondale Community Center is a Mission project of the UCC Missouri Mid-South Conference

serving the spiritual educational & economic needs of Shannon & the surrounding counties

through its many functions. Shannondale also encompasses the Bucher Memorial Tree Farm,

the oldest continuing tree farm in the state of Missouri. The tree farm illustrates our continuing

commitment to God's land & its resources.


The Wobus Crafts Center was established to serve as an outlet for local artisans to supplement

their incomes. The center features baskets, woodwork, quilts & other handmade items.

Shannondale also provides varied lodging arrangements for families & groups on service projects,

work camps or retreats. This beautiful oasis is about 40 miles south of Rolla, MO, near the Ozark

National Scenic Riverway, and we are fortunate to have this stretch of land in our Conference.

We hope to see you at Shannondale in May for the Annual Men's Retreat.  Gather a group of guys from your church, work or office, or just a bunch of friends who want to (or maybe need to!) get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and spend a few days getting back to the basics.  Back to the basics of God, fellowship and nature.  See you in May!
