Grit, Grace, and Transformation

April 30, 2019 9:00 am to 3:00 pm
A Day of Reflection for Women

Retreat Title: Grit, Grace, and Transformation

The stories of women, such as Mary Magdalene and the Woman at the Well, who encounter Jesus can serve to inform, inspire, and motivate us. We will break open some of their stories from Scripture and reflect on who we recognize today as women of strength and courage. These women are open to receive grace, which then transforms them into being the women in Christ they are called to be.

Program Cost: $50.00 (includes Lunch)
