Excited conversations, smiles, and laughter describe this past weekend as women arrived for our first Women’s Retreat weekend of 2019. For women to be able to step away from their usual schedules at home is a commitment, so we strive to program a balance of new experiences and restful unplugging at each Women’s Retreat weekend. This past weekend was full of fellowship, activities, crafts, but most importantly times to worship and hear truth shared from our speaker, Robyn Dykstra. As women departed Sunday, the peace-filled joyfulness of the women was evident and something we praise God for.
Women’s Retreat is designed to provide women exactly this…a retreat. A change of pace from the normal day to day routine so they can reset and refocus during their time away. Not only is it a fun time spent with friends doing activities that are out of the ordinary, it is a time for women to hear God’s voice and spend time with Him, learning what it means to know Him more. Starting the day in prayer, spending solo time after lunch, singing praises to God and hearing Biblical teaching all provide opportunities to do this outside of the normal routines at home.
Thank you to all of the women who have attended and those who have yet to attend our Women’s Retreats. We are continually amazed at those who prioritize coming back year after year —and for those who have come for the first time and now are excited about returning again! Praise God for allowing Camp to be a place where women grow closer to God and commit to following Him even after they leave from this place.
We are thankful to God for the stories we’re already hearing from the women about how they encountered God this weekend as they paused to hear His voice. Join us in praying for this upcoming weekend when more women will step foot on our campus for our second Women’s Retreat of the year. Our prayer is He is glorified again this weekend through the work of our team!
If you missed out on booking this Spring, good news! We are also excited and look forward to the addition of our third Women’s Retreat this year! Programmed the same as our spring retreats, we hope this will provide an additional option for those looking for a retreat at a different time of year. Registration is already open for Women’s Retreat 3 (September 27-29)!
