March 9-10, 2018

Mary and Martha are sisters that we find in the New Testament.  They were friends of Jesus.  They are known for the time Jesus came to visit and while Martha scrambled about busily to serve Christ, Mary sat calmly at His feet and listened to His teaching.  Both ladies served God in very different ways, but they loved Him equally.   Are you a Mary or a Martha – and how does that affect how we love and serve Christ in OUR lives?

ABOUT OUR WORSHIP LEADER – Becca Washington

Our worship will be led by Becca Washington from Gateway Christian Church in St. Louis along with a few others from their church.  She is very excited to be a part of this weekend and leading our ladies into the presence of God through worship.

ABOUT OUR WORKSHOPS

Our first “workshop” will be a time of reflection with questionaire style helps – Do you identify more with Mary or Martha?  And then a time of discussion will follow.

Our second workshop time will be an actual class. There will be 3-4 classesto choose from.  This will be a longer workshop time so that there can be plenty of discussion, fellowship, and prayer during the class.

ABOUT OUR CRAFT TIME

There is something to be said for object lessons.  Our craft time will feature a hands on craft-object lesson for everyone.  You will participate in the craft while we share a deep truth with you.  In the end, you will take your craft home as a reminder of what you learned this weekend.

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 workshoips.  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 sensitve 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.
