Join us for the 2015 Women’s Retreat to be held on September 19 and 20. Our theme for the weekend is "PreApproved". This retreat is for ALL women of ALL ages! It is a weekend of laughing, learning, playing, enjoying God’s beautiful creation, drinking coffee, soaking up God’s Word, worship, reconnecting with friends, making new friends, and having delicious meals served – which you don’t have to cook or clean up!
We are very excited to have our speaker, Jennifer Dukes Lee, bring God’s message to all the women this year. She is the author of Love Idol, a book that has sparked a nationwide movement of women declaring that they are "PreApproved" in Chirst. Jennifer is an Iowa native and a former reporter for The Des Moines Register. To learn more about our guest speaker, head over to jenniferdukeslee.com. Jennifer invites you to rediscover the astonishing love of our Savior who gave up heaven to prove his love for us.
Along with being filled up and renewed at this retreat, every year our women's retreat has an outreach project to help others in a tangible way. This year attendees are asked to bring items to donate to Ruth Harbor and Wings of Refuge. Ruth Harbor is a Christ-centered home for young women who are alone and facing unplanned pregnancies. "Ruth" means compassion; "Harbor" means a place of refuge, safety, retreat, and shelter. You can learn more about Ruth Harbor on their website. Wings of Refuge is a home in north-central Iowa that addresses human trafficking. It is a Christ-centered home working to help young women who are victimized by the practice. When you register, you will receive more specific information about the weekend and a list of things that these two homes need.
The retreat will begin at 8:30 am on Saturday and concludes with 11:45 am brunch on Sunday morning. Register by September 11 to ensure you have a spot.
