Women's Retreat 2020








                                                                   “Abide in Me, and I in you.
                                      As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, 
                                                       neither can you, unless you abide in Me.

                                                                               John 15:4

Jesus calls us to abide in him, but what does that really mean? As women with many demands on our attention, we often struggle to dwell, rest and remain in Christ himself. Together we’ll study what God’s Word says about abiding — and take the time to put it into practice as we worship the Lord, connect with one another, and enjoy beautiful Lake Geneva together.

Explore what it means to abide fully in Christ with teaching sessions spread throughout the weekend. Laurel Aulie, Heidi Johanik, Debbie Seward and Annie Gentzler will walk us through what abiding looks like throughout the Bible. Lois Krogh will be sharing a special session on prayer journaling. There will also be a practical panel discussion on spiritual disciplines.

Start your day with Zumba or a prayer time Saturday morning. Relax and spend time with friends old and new during free time Saturday afternoon. Feel free to head to downtown Lake Geneva or take a nap, but there will also be lots of options to choose from at the retreat! Games to play, a knitting circle (bring your project!), puzzle space, and even an art spot stocked with lots of art supplies all hosted in our retreat space at the Abbey Resort. Throughout the weekend you will also have the opportunity to shop at a specially curated book table run by 10ofthose.
