Also, give them the names of all the ladies who will be sharing your room. This will speed up your time for checking in.

Although we would hope that all ladies attending the retreat will be able to come for the entire weekend, we realize that for some scheduling presents a problem. So that we can make it possible to share in this enriching experience with as many ladies as possible, we are again offering several options for attending the retreat. On the registration form you can indicate whether you are coming for the entire weekend, 2 days – Friday and Saturday or Saturday and Sunday, or only Saturday. (Saturday does include the entertainment.) The costs for those options are indicated on the registration form. We stress that these options are available for those who cannot share in the entire weekend retreat. We want to encourage all attendees to share in the full weekend retreat.

2017 Theme:  Forgiveness and Peace

On Friday night we will begin with a Forgiveness Workshop: Conflict vs. Peace.  During this time we will take a look at several typical scenarios in which people commonly experience conflict and yet want peace.  Working together, we will discuss how to deal with situations that divide families, create friction in the workplace, place wedges between friends, and cause conflict among church members.

On Saturday we are grateful to have Kenneth J. Kremer share biblical strategies for Christian Conflict from his book,  A Heart at Peace, during two sessions on Saturday morning.   True peace is found only in God’s Word.  In John 14:27, Jesus says, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.”  With this world so riddled with conflicts, how do we find the peace that Jesus offers?  Join us for a weekend of studying the scriptures as we examine the peace Jesus offers and meditate on gaining his peace in our lives.  We encourage you to read the book ahead of time or copies will be available for purchase at the retreat.

On Saturday afternoon,  Amanda Albee Swenson will be enriching the idea of how we can obtain peace through a forgiving heart.
