My God and I
During this special time, we will be sharing with our sisters through fellowship, Special Moments, prayer requests, and even Moonlight Madness. Plan now to be part of this year’s event. We ask you to join with the members of the committee in praying for the success of this retreat and we encourage you to invite your sisters and friends.
[pullquote1 quotes=”true” align=”center”]This is what you were born for: an intimate relationship with God. That is the purpose of your existence. That is what you are worth to Him. But this intimate relationship requires 2 things: First, you set aside time so your heavenly Father can communicate with you through His Word and through His Spirit. Second, you spend time communicating with Him in prayer. If you want intimacy with God your Father, then you will have to make the time for it.[/pullquote1]
Dress is casual, so plan to be comfortable. You do not have to stay overnight at the building, but two rooms will be provided for those who want to do so. One room is “lights out” at 11:00 PM, and the other is at 2:00 AM. If you are sleeping at the church building, remember to bring a sleeping bag, sleeping pad, pillow, toiletries and any personal essentials you’ll need.
This is a great time to encourage your husband to spend some extra special time with your children. This is also a good time for husbands to support women who need child care during the weekend.
[note_box]This retreat is for women, high school age and up. Based upon past evaluations, the elders request there be no children in attendance.[/note_box]

There is a $5.00 registration fee; however, if that is a hindrance, scholarships are available. Your early registration helps us plan for food and supplies for everyone. Dinner and check-in will begin at 5:00 PM on Friday. If you have not registered in advance, you may do so at that time. The retreat will end approximately at 4:00 PM on Saturday.
Online registration is preferred as it allows us to collect all of your information quickly and easily. We are not requiring you to pay the registration fee online so you don’t have to pay credit card processing charges and, instead, are taking payments at the door.
If you choose to register offline, complete the registration form and return it and your $5.00 to Verneta Wallace or one of the Anchorage church secretaries. For those of you away from our congregation, you may also utilize one of the options below.
