The Women's Retreat enables women to connect intimately with God and foster relationships and build long-lasting friendships with other women.

This year's theme is Belonging. Whether we realize it or not, all of us are looking for a place to belong- somewhere that we can feel at ease and “at home.”  We want to feel understood, seen, and known for who we really are. For a number of reasons, it can be difficult for most of us to feel like we belong. It seems like there are a lot of obstacles in the way when it comes to feeling a true sense of belonging- like our insecurities, failures, shortcomings, and more. But when we understand and embrace our belonging to Christ and to the family of God, it can bring freedom and joy to our relationship with God and others. In other words, when our identities and whole lives are characterized by belonging to God, it changes everything
