Women’s Retreat

April 26, 2024 April 28, 2024

WHAT:
We are thrilled to invite all women, ages 18 and older, to our 6th annual retreat! Join us for a weekend of fun, friendship and studying the Word. The weekend includes 4 sessions with teaching, praise and worship, as well as times for fellowship, games, meals and recreational activities!

THEME:
Jonah: The Relentless Pursuit of God: Our weekend includes 4 sessions taught by wonderful women from our church. When we think about Jonah it most likely brings to mind images and feelings about the miracle of Jonah surviving in the belly of a fish for three days. But the real miracle of this story is not the fish, it’s God’s relentless pursuit of the undeserving! Join us as we dive deep into this book to learn about God’s justice and grace and what true obedience requires. “The thoroughness of God’s commitment to us is the measure of the length to which he will go to make us fruitful.” ~ Sinclair Ferguson

  • Session #1 – Jonah 1
  • Session #2 – Jonah 2, taught by Suzi Hardy
