What: Women's Retreat "Beautiful Feet"
For: Women (age 16+)
When: Friday, March 8 - Saturday, March 9
Are your feet running in all directions? Are they aching to be put up to relax? Are you feeling “foot loose and fancy free”? Do you need a reminder that God thinks your feet are beautiful?
Then it’s time to shuffle, walk, boogie, hike, or run to Brethren Woods for the 2019 “Beautiful Feet” Women’s Retreat! During this overnight retreat experience, women (age 16+) will take a walk through God’s Word together to discover the truth of Isaiah 52:7 (and Romans 10:15) that proclaims: “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger who announces peace, who brings good news, who announces salvation, who says to Zion, ‘Your God reigns.’”
Using various shoe styles as metaphors for different parts of our spiritual lives, we will explore our spiritual “shoe size”, what truly makes our feet beautiful, and what God calls us to do with our beautiful feet. We will also enjoy partner pedicures, a reflective nature walk, and crafts! Get ready to be swept off your feet as we enjoy fabulous food and tasty treats, tap our toes as we lift our voices in worship, and kick up our heels as we share encouragement, fellowship, and knock-your-socks off fun with other sisters in Christ!
This fun, casual getaway will begin on Friday, March 8th. Ladies can arrive anytime after 4:00pm with dinner scheduled from 5:30-6:00pm. Our first session will start at 6:30pm. The weekend will close at about 4:00pm on Saturday, March 9th. The registration fee is only $75 per person and covers everything you’ll need including three delicious and healthy meals, overnight accommodations, retreat leadership, and all supplies.
We are excited to welcome Brandy Leipelt as this year’s speaker! Brandy Liepelt co-pastors the Annville CoB congrega on with her husband, Paul. They live in Annville, PA with their two lovely daughters. Brandy has served the church in many ways over the years including as a chaplain, solo pastor, co-pastor, missionary/teacher at Kulp Bible College (Kwarhi, Nigeria), curriculum writer, and retreat leader/speaker. Brandy says, "I really enjoy women's ministry and the retreat/camp setting. When we can put away modern distractions God can and often does speak right to our hearts in the most amazing ways."
Beautiful Feet is a great chance to retreat and would be a wonderful treat for a women’s group or a couple of friends to share together! Just let us know when you register that you’d like to room together and we’ll take care of everything else!
