The pressure is on to make our faith in Christ conform to what is palatable to our society. The degree to which we cultivate a deep walk with Christ will determine our resilience and our effectiveness at being light bearers in a dark world. Come and join us at Women's Retreat The Faithful Remnant May 17-19, 2024. Perhaps you were created for such a time as this. Esther 4:4

 We are all about influencing the next generation  for Jesus.  We encourage you to invite your teenage daughters and granddaughters ages 13+ to attend Women's Retreat.  Teenagers must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Saturday Seminars

Track One: 9:50-10:50am

Woman in woods with a wondering look on face

ANSWERED

The times we live in are at best perplexing.  What does the Bible have to say about what is happening right now?  What should I be doing during this time? Who or what can I trust?  Come join us as we seek to explore Biblical answers to your questions.

Track Two: 11am-noon

EMBRACING
MOTHERHOOD

Being a mom is a 24/7 job full of challenges, joys and opportunities.  Come join us as we discuss balancing our time, staying connected to Jesus and embracing those “God Moments” when we can impart our faith to our little ones.

TOXIC INFLUENCES

The Bible has a lot to say about what we allow to influence our thinking. So, what do we do when we find ourselves in relationships that are unhealthy and putting a wedge between us and the Lord.  Come learn what the Lord has for us as we discern between life-giving and life-taking relationships.
Spiritual Warfare - sword and Bible

SPIRITUAL WARFARE

Spiritual warfare is real and increasingly more prevalent. How can we know the difference between Biblical warfare and unbiblical warfare?  Join us as we discover the power of Jesus as we yield to the Word of God rather than trying to power up over the enemy.

Expanded Seminar: 9:50am-12:00pm

Grief - woman with tears

UNPACKING GRIEF

Grief can come in a variety of forms such as the death of a loved one, a change in health, the loss of independence or the reversal of income. How do we feel and process the impact of loss without staying in a holding pattern of sorrow?  Come join us as we delve into releasing our grief to the Lord.

PLEASE NOTE:

Our heart is to give women a break and provide for them a place to rest and relax, free from their usual responsibilities. To that end, we respectfully request that little ones remain at home so that moms and others attending the retreat can fully focus on what the Lord has for them and go home refreshed and encouraged. THANK YOU!
