What: Women's Retreat "Treasured"
For: Women (age 16+)
When: Friday, March 20 - Saturday, March 21
Get ready to be bedazzled at Brethren Woods on March 20th-21st for our “Treasured” Women’s Retreat! During this overnight retreat experience, women (age 16+) will take a walk in the light of God’s Word together to discover the truth of Deuteronomy 14:3 that proclaims:
“The LORD has chosen you to be a people for His treasured possession.”
Even on the days when you feel chipped and tarnished, you (YES, YOU!) are the precious, treasured possession of our heavenly Father, who sought us and claimed us as His own in Christ! Join us as we illuminate how, from coal to diamonds, we are continually being transformed in Christ, reflecting His glory and light to a dark world.
This weekend will sparkle as we enjoy fabulous food and tasty treats, lift our voices in worship, participate in personal reflection time, do crafts, and share encouragement, fellowship, and fun with other sisters in Christ, the Light of the World!
Ladies can arrive anytime after 4pm on Friday. Dinner will be served from 5:30-6:00pm and our first session starts at 6:30pm. Our time together will end around 4pm on Saturday.
We are excited to welcome Rev. Mandy North as this year’s speaker! Mandy pastors the Manassas Church of the Brethren. She lives in Manassas, VA with her husband, Sean, and 10-year-old twins, Tyler and Kailea. Her family is complete with 3 kittens and 2 gerbils as well! Mandy has served the church in many ways as a curriculum writer for Shine, interim pastor at Nokesville CoB, Pastor of Faith Formation and now Lead Pastor at Manassas CoB. She serves on the Spiritual & Congregational Life Ministry team of Mid-Atlantic District as the advisor for Junior High Youth. Mandy says, “I always enjoy time together away with other women for quality time to talk, to fellowship, and to care for and love each other as we deepen our relationships with one another.”
"Treasured" 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!
