Awaken Women's Retreat

Date: 09/28/2018

Capacity: Available

If you close your eyes, you can almost feel the hope. You remember, it was during a dark commute in the wee morning hours. The world sleepy & stirring, when in the distance, the sun pierced the morning darkness as it overcame the sky. Something stirred within; expectancy, wonder & peace. Sister, your heart may feel tired but it is not dead! Come away, awaken your heart to hope, wonder & peace as we encounter the Holy Trinity amidst a weekend of beauty.

Awaken is a retreat designed for women to encounter the healing presence of Father God, Jesus Christ the Son and Holy Spirit in an atmosphere of beauty, stillness and worship. In addition to retreat sessions, there is ample time to recreate on camp property. Recreation is weather permitting and will include but is not limited to hiking, rock climbing and rappelling.
