2020 Women's Weekend, Sept. 18-19
Join us for a relaxing, ladies-only, overnight getaway. Meet new friends, reconnect with old friends, re-charge your batteries, and re-focus your faith.
We’ll have time to learn, laugh and share over coffee and great food. Choose from a variety of activities, from high-energy, to not-so high-energy.
Dig in deep to God’s Word. Learn how He is a constant light in the darkness of this world, and meet some women who will encourage you to take that light to those who desperately need it.
Cost is $40 for the whole event or $20 per day. For details and online registration, click the link below:
