Day Apart Retreat

January 18, 2019

9:30am-3:30pm | Downtown W-S

After the busyness and bustle of the holiday season we all need a chance to slow down and catch our breath. It is also important to give time to our relationships with the Lord, as, ironic as it may seem, we can become disconnected from Jesus in the midst of Christmas activities.

The Day Apart Retreat is a wonderful opportunity to slow down and connect with the Lord! There will be 2 engagement options on the retreat; 1) Spending the majority of the time alone after receiving suggested reflection tools; 2) Options for group debrief after periods of time alone. The January retreat cost $15 and includes refreshments and lunch. All are welcome.

To inquire about additional information, contact Amy Carlan, 336-723-1621 x228.

Montreat, NC

Single:  $200
*Don’t let funds be a barrier.  If the price is an issue, contact Amy Carlan.

We know that it takes a lot of energy to create space to pull away from the ordinary routine of life. But we also know that it is worth the effort – many times we can hear the Lord more readily when we clear out the noise of the everyday. We trust that God has a good word that He wants to share with us, through teaching, worship, and community. We hope you will join us for Women’s Retreat in 2020!
