Women's Retreat:  Shaken to the Core

May 19-21, 2023

Do you ever wonder what planet you are living on?  The moorings of our life that seemed so stable are eroding.  What remains and what falls to the ground when we are Shaken to the Core?  Join us as we lean into the Word of God and discover the value of unshakeable faith in Jesus Christ.  

"These trials will show that your faith is genuine.  It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold---though your faith is far more precious than mere gold."  1 Peter 1:7
REGISTER IN 2023

 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.

Pre-Conference Luncheon
Theme: Seek Ye First

Keeping our eyes on the Lord can be challenging, especially when He calls us to do something we feel inadequate to accomplish.  In the Bible we are reminded, “My grace is all you need.  My power works best in weakness.”  
We are also reminded to “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously and he will give you everything you need.”  Come discover that confident assurance that awaits us as we lift our eyes to Jesus and rely on God's grace.
