Our first Women’s Retreat since before the pandemic will take place on Saturday, January 13, 2024 from 8:45am -4:45pm (leave and arrive back at church via carpool) at Lenox House, 290 Lenox Avenue, Oakland, just 2 miles from church. There is an internal staircase. Dress comfortably.

The New Year’s theme is Rest and Renew. Leave your busy post-holiday lives for a few hours of peace, exploration and sharing your stories with your church sisters.

We will retreat by easy carpool from the church to Lenox House, which is a lovely old mansion and Christian retreat center just blocks up the hill from Fairy Land. All prayer and practices will be led by wonderful women of the congregation who are willing to share their depth of spiritual wisdom. We will experience ancient and modern practices that calm the body, center the mind, engage the imagination in Scripture and open the heart to the Holy Spirit. The afternoon will end with Communion.

By the grace of God, you will leave with a full heart, feeling refreshed, connected to other women and loved.

Cost is $50, including lunch (specify if vegetarian when registering).

Registration is limited to 25. Register below.
