As women, we lead busy lives. It is vital that we set time aside and apart for spiritual renewal and transformation. This women’s retreat will focus on the lives of few biblical women and explore how their lives are relevant to us today. Prepare yourselves for a day of wonderful fellowship, good food, new and renewed friendships, and much fun as we are refreshed in God’s presence.
