September 29 – October 1, 2023
We are excited to let you know that our registration for the women’s retreat is now open. Our theme is Abiding in Christ (John 15:5). We will be starting the retreat on Friday, September 29th at 6:30pm and it will go until Sunday, October 1st at 2:30pm. The price for the event is $125 per lady. We never want to turn anyone away, so please let us know if we can help financially.
John 15:5 says, “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” Abiding a verb, and action. Abiding in Christ is not a feeling or a belief, but something we do. It means an active walk with our Lord and Saviour each day as we live for Him.
Jesus tells his followers to abide, but what does that mean? How do we know—really know—that God loves us? Can we know with certainty that we are in a right relationship with Him? Can we be confident that we are abiding in Christ? How can we know we are abiding in Christ’s love?
Guest speaker and author Stacey Weeks will lead us, open the Word of God to share the hope of Christ, and encourage us in the Word. Stacey is a pastor’s wife, the mother of three teenagers, and a sipper of hot tea with honey. Most importantly, she is a daughter of the King. Stacey is a fixer of old things, a painter of everything, and cleansed and forgiven child of God. She believes nothing matters more than the Lord Jesus Christ and who she believes He is. Stacey is excited to dive into Scripture with us and uncover the joy and love Jesus promises to those who abide in Him.
