Dear Ladies,

Our hearts go out to all of you during this difficult time. So many of you experienced major flooding in your home, in the homes of friends or family members, and of course the flooding in our own church. Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you as we all begin to establish a "new normal" in our lives.

We realize that this October is not the best time to have our annual retreat. We are not canceling the retreat, merely postponing it. The Dickinson Christian Renewal Center took on water as well and they understand our need to postpone. You may visit with Barbara Williams at the church and ask for a refund or simply leave your money there and it will be applied towards the retreat once we reschedule.

Continue to look to God for strength and guidance as we ponder

"Finding Peace in a Puzzled World."

In His Love,

Women's Retreat Planning Team


Christian Renewal Center in Dickinson


Do you ever wonder....

How can we ever find peace in this puzzled world?....

Where is God in the midst of the chaos that seems to be so prevalent all around us?.....

What is our role as Christian women to help bring peace to others?

We hope you will join us for the Women's Retreat.

The Women's Retreat is designed for women (18 yrs. and older) to have the opportunity to learn, pray, share and worship together.

Our Speaker, Mak (Mary Kathryn) Percival, serves as Parkway's Associate Pastor as well as the Pastor of Student Ministries. Mak has a deep rooted passion to serve Christ. She believes in equipping others to learn their identity in Christ so they can transform the world. During the retreat, she will bring us scriptural insight to finding God's peace for ourselves and others.

Meredith Bates, will lead us in praise and worship and our own, Judy Bettison, will even be there to guide us in peaceful meditation through a special yoga session.

Cost for the event is $130 which will include your room (double occupancy), 3 meals, snacks and a t-shirt to commemorate the event. Space is limited. (To reserve a single occupancy room for an additional $25, contact Carla Gerdes to check availability.)

Sign up online now or in the Welcome Center beginning August 20. Space is limited and payment is required to complete the registration. Cash, check or credit card. PAY HERE (this takes you to the giving page, click ONLINE GIVING, enter $130 in the Women's Ministry box).

Blessings and Peace,

Your 2017 Women's Retreat Leadership Team
