Ladies Retreat for 2017 will be at beautiful Falls Creek Retreat Center.
Attention SVCC Ladies, it is time to start thinking about this year's Ladies Retreat, October 13 - 15 at beautiful Falls Creek Retreat Center. Our theme is the same one we planned for last year -- Loving Our Neighbors. Remember, we needed to cancel our 2016 retreat because of dangerous weather conditions. There was a tornado warning at the Retreat Center!
The cost for the entire weekend Friday dinner, overnight, Saturday breakfast, lunch and dinner, overnight and Sunday brunch is $160.00. We have a Saturday option for a $10.00 site fee plus the options of breakfast $10, lunch $15 and dinner $15. There are work scholarships available if money is a little tight.
Amy Larson and her team will be leading worship.
Our special speakers are Caroline Bowes, Summer Phillips, Cathy Murphy and Linda Clements. These women are loving their neighbors and are inspirational.
There will be time for rest on Saturday afternoon but we will also be offering some electives in the late afternoon before dinner.
There is a gorgeous waterfall to hike up to. Deer are often seen grazing at the Retreat Center. It is peaceful and quiet.
For those of you who are responsible mothers of small children, consider asking your husband, friend or relative if they might be able to watch your children so you can have a much needed, relaxing and restorative get away. You'll probably be a better wife and mother when you return.
We have the capacity to accommodate 34 women to spend the 2 nights. But we are wide open for women to sign up for the Saturday option. Come for breakfast and lunch and dinner, or lunch and dinner or just lunch. It's a bargain.
All linens are provided, no bunk beds. There is a big hot tub to relax your overworked bodies!
This is an opportunity to pray about. We know it is not probable that all of you can come. We are hoping lots of you will say "yes."
Sign ups will be during the 4 Sundays of September. There will not be sign ups in October because we need to submit the head count and money early in October. Full payment is required at sign up as well. There is no installment plan. Don't forget the Work Scholarship Opportunities. Talk to Linda Wiebracht soon if you would like to earn your way. Because your very last opportunity to sign up is Sunday, September 24.
We have a great retreat team this year to make this a weekend to remember so we can leave on October 15 as motivated women equipped with new ideas of loving our neighbors because we love Jesus.
