WOMEN’S MINISTRY

Women's Ministry Fall Retreat

Rest. Renewal. Recovery. Revival.
Release. Rejoice. Recharge.

Do these words resonate with you today? Has the last year has left you feeling a little depleted? A little worn out?

Friends, it’s time for you to {RE}treat. Come join us at this year’s {RE}treat and recharge through meaningful worship, encouraging speakers, fun giveaways/silent auction opportunities, and a special community of women. The world can wear us out, but we can recover our lives. Let’s take a deep breath and start living freely and lightly.

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

Matthew 11:28-30
