This year's Ladies Retreat was a smashing success! 115 women, young and... not-so-young, all gathered here at camp to relax, recharge, and recenter their focus on the One that matters: Jesus Christ. A large variety of activities were offered, including unique crafts, shopping tours, and of course, outdoor recreation. Whether these ladies were chatting it up while felting wool slippers, or conquering their fears to jump off of the 50-foot climbing tower, there was plenty of fun and encouragement to go around.
Here are but a few of the wonderful comments we received from Ladies Weekend attendees.
"I felt very comfortable being around all the new ladies, I met some new friends and would love to come back with some friends."
"[I was] encouraged by the speakers! Finding rest and peace amongst trials and day-to-day life; God holds ALL in His hands no matter how difficult or big the situation."
"God is using this place in amazing ways!"
"Kelly's teaching and sharing on clinging to God during suffering was incredibly impactful."
"[I was] blessed by the love of others and loads of encouragement."
"I really enjoyed the comforting, relaxing pace."
"The ladies did an awesome job with their real life stories. Sometimes Christians want to be a good example and try to be perfect. These ladies were very relatable."
And there you have it! God moved in incredible ways during Ladies Weekend, and we pray that each and every woman continues to spend time in the Word, and seek God's will in their lives every day.
If you're a woman, and you missed out on the retreat, no need to worry, we have one every year! Mark your calendar for September 9-11, 2016. We hope to see you there!
