Women's Retreat

March 6-8 | retreat begins at 7:30 pm, registration opens at 5:00 pm | click here to register

In our performance-based society, the pressure to put our best foot forward, to exceed expectations, and the yearning to be “liked,” is huge. 

As a women’s ministry, our desire is “to cultivate a community where women are free to be their whole, broken and beautiful selves – where they can be nurtured and transformed as they encounter Jesus in His Word and experience the power of the Holy Spirit enabling them to walk

in the fullness of who the Father made them to be.”  

 

Invite your friends (college-age women and up) and join us for a weekend at a beautiful venue in Cross Lake, MN as we engage with one another in a fun, interactive format and go “Behind the Curtain” to focus on intimacy and authenticity with God and each other. Beth Fabel and Wendy Seelhoff will facilitate the weekend where you will hear inspiring stories, receive transformational teaching and engage with one another in activities and learning all designed to draw us into a greater understanding of who we are and how we can grow in community with one another.

$220 for double room (2 queens or 1 king)*
