Women's Retreat

January 31-Feb 2, 2020

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!
