Join us for a weekend of rejoicing, reflection, and renewal January 14-16, 2022 at the Montreat Retreat and Conference Center in North Carolina.
This year’s theme is Connections, and together we’ll work on reconnecting all of the pieces that may seem scattered these days. We’ll look specifically at ways to (re)connect with ourselves, with one another, and with God, and see how the Biblical Women who have come before us led the way.
Planning in a pandemic is hard… and we soon have to give Montreat a fair estimate of the number of rooms we will need. We know that things change at the last minute, and of course we can make adjustments as needed, but if you’re planning to come, assuming we can gather safely in January, please go ahead and sign up early at the link below. Contact Cheryl Kelley (by email or 770-536-0126) with questions.
