WOMEN'S RETREAT

November 6-8, 2020 

 

Come and join us for an impactful weekend with other like-minded women as we seek the Lord together and adventure in His incredible Creation.  This is one of our favorite weekends of the year and we thank the Lord in advance for how He will minister to us this November!

Theme: Courageous

women of the exodus    

Moses is the central character of the book of Exodus, but if not for the courageous women who save him again and again, he never could have brought Israel out of Egypt.

 

Each of these women -- midwife, mother, sister, daughter, wife, neighbor -- has something to teach us about how to navigate a world plagued by injustice.

 

Come join us for a weekend to remember as we explore the stories of these audacious women and ask God for the courage to follow in their footsteps.
