It is our purpose to provide a ministry that will challenge adults to establish and develop a
personal relationship with Christ our Lord, experience unconditional acceptance, and learn more
about God through Bible study, devotions, singing, prayer, fun, fellowship and faith sharing. It
is an opportunity to be in community quite apart from the pressures, demands, and stereotypes of
everyday living with old and new friends. These retreats include teaching sessions, free time to
enjoy the beautiful outdoors, fellowship along with delicious, nutritious meals, and we do the
Women’s Retreat March 17-19, 2023

Please join us as we explore the life and relationship between two sisters, Mary and Martha and learn about having a Mary heart in a Martha world. Luke 10:38-42
