Women's Retreat Ministry
This ministry gets together during the year to plan and prepare a one-day "stay retreat" or a weekend "away retreat" for the women of the church.
Extended moments with God are precious and few. Our busy lifestyles rarely allow that time away from routine and the cares of home, family, and work. We have so many things that distract us from choosing “that which is needful” with time at the feet of Jesus. A retreat gives women that time to de-stress and focus on God and how He is speaking to them. In turn, that time with Him opens the door for greater change and transformation, as well as “times of refreshing in the presence of the Lord” (Acts 3:19).
