Women’s Retreat 2023: Goodness of God
Join other women for a weekend of connection, conversation, and celebration centered around God’s Goodness as we begin the new year together. Focused on Psalm 107:8-9, “Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness.” and join with others to discover how God’s Goodness encapsulates, encourages, and endures! This weekend getaway has become a treasured event for over 27 years and is designed to start your new year off in community with other women who share similar joys and challenges as followers of Jesus.
