Women's Weekend

A Special Event for Ladies from Our Partner Churches
 

February 28-29, 2020

COMMON GROUNDS: 

Finding commonality in Jesus through every walk of life.

Our theme this year is “COMMON GROUNDS.”  This relaxed, coffee house style weekend will be focused on finding our commonality through every walk of life.  Everyone has a story, and we should all use our testimonies to encourage, inspire, empathize and to ultimately, encounter Christ with others.  You won’t want to miss this powerful weekend!

SPEAKER: TBA

WORSHIP: Ladies of O’Fallon Christian Church

Share Your Story

Because our theme is all about how everyone has a story, we would like to give THREE ladies an opportunity to share theirs.    These three ladies will each have a 30 minute time slot during the weekend to share how God has impacted their life in a positive way.  Selected speakers will also receive a complementary registration for Women’s Weekend.  Please note, you don’t have to have some elaborate, shameful past to share what God has done in your life.  We are looking for relateable stories of God’s goodness. 

Did you grow up in church your whole life and only really find God as an adult?  Are you a foster parent?  Have you lost someone dear to you?  Are you divorced and feeling the struggle of daily life as a single parent?  Are you a mom of a special needs child? Have you gone on a mission trip that changed your life?

Everyone has a story.

We’d like to hear yours.

CONCERNING NURSING BABIES

We have had a few questions about if it’s possible/allowed to bring a nursing baby to the retreat.  A nursing baby is welcome.  If they are mobile or very vocal then we ask that you have someone additional come to help take care of them during sessions and workshops.  This lady would also need to pay for room and meals as they would be taking another attendee’s space.  This is our policy because some of the women paying to attend are moms who are needing this quiet time away for spiritual growth, and we want to be sensitive to their needs as well.  Thank you for your understanding. If you still have questions or would like to discuss this subject, please call Lori at 636-585-2262.
