Together We Bloom – Ladies’ Retreat

“Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.”  I Peter 3:8

We need each other! 

Scripture assures us of this, and simple observation constantly bears it out. God has given us a wonderful church family with manifold gifts. Yes!—each of us has a special gift very much needed by the Body of Christ. Whether you are confident in your gifts or even wondering what your gift may be, we pray that you will consider making plans to get away with the ladies in your church family to enjoy a time of benefiting from and blooming in one another’s fellowship and ministry.

You can count on hearing testimonies from ladies that you know (or should get to know!). We will enjoy an opportunity to study the Bible with a small group of ladies—we need the Word of God to dwell richly in us! Attendees will also participate in a time of corporate prayer. Fellowship, Scripture, prayer—don’t miss this precious time together.

Together We Bloom:

  • Encouraged in the Lord through fellowship, fun, and opportunities for spiritual reflection.
  • Strengthened in your relationships with God and others in your church family.  You will leave with a new friend or perhaps a renewed acquaintance. 
  • Refreshed by meeting in a comfortable location that minimizes familiar distractions.  Getting away helps us sustain a focus on the Lord.
