Women’s Retreat 2019

Beautiful, Strong and Courageous

Discover your beauty from ashes story

Two Day Women’s Retreat

Welcome to our annual women’s retreat, Beautiful, Strong and Courageous. The retreat starts at 7 pm on Thursday, Nov. 7 and ends at 11 am on Saturday, Nov. 9. Spaces are limited! Please register by October 22nd!

Time to get away from everyday responsibilities to be immersed in the beauty of nature, refreshed by contemplative time with God and creative worship, and invigorated by the companionship of other women.

Women walk in their beauty, strength and courage every day and sometimes feel the need to just get away from daily routines to receive rest and refreshment.  This is time to feel loved, affirmed, encouraged and inspired.  Deep healing and new direction typically comes out of moments when we retreat together.

Join us for ministry time*, motivation time, quiet time, contemplative time, and creative spiritual practices that connects us to each other and The Triune God. Be inspired by the beauty-from-ashes stories of wise women.  (Not to mention laughter, fun, and leaving with new friends!)

*There will be opportunities for in-depth ministry.

We look forward to seeing you there!

“To comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.” – Isaiah 61:2b-3, NIV
