39th Annual Ladies Retreat – 2018


What is this about and what will we do?  “Diamonds in the Rough” ~ This common phrase’s literal meaning is that naturally-occurring diamonds are quite ordinary at first glance, and that their true beauty as jewels is only realized through the cutting, refining and polishing process. Join us, as we explore our hidden jewel that can only be realized with help of the One True Refiner. We will sing, we will eat, we will fellowship and we’ll leave feeling edified and uplifted.  You don’t want to miss it!

Who is it for?  All women, high school age and up. Whether your cup needs refilling or if it is overflowing, this retreat is for YOU!  This is also a great opportunity to invite friends!

How much is it?  The cost is $5. If the cost will keep you from coming, ask about a scholarship.  Someone else has already made an investment in your spiritual walk and wants you there!

Do I need to register?  Registration is certainly helpful to plan on meals and supplies for activities.  Please complete a registration form and return it and your $5.00 to Anchorage Church of Christ, 2700 DeBarr Rd., Anchorage, AK 99508-2978, fax it to 907-272-7586, e-mail it to judy@anccoc.org, give it to Verneta Wallace or to one of the Anchorage church secretaries. You may also register on-line at anccoc.org. If you do register on-line, fax, or e-mail your form, you may pay when you arrive. Although pre-registration is helpful, no one will be turned away at the door so come anyway!  Registration packet

What should I bring?  Bring a bible and a willing spirit.  Dress is casual and meals are provided.

We will not be sleeping at the building this year.

If you need a place to stay for Friday night, mark it on your form and housing will be provided

When should I be there?  Registration begins at 5pm Friday afternoon and dinner is available at 5:30pm.  Registration and breakfast begin at 7:30am Saturday morning.

One last thing:  Please note this retreat is for high school age and up.  Our elders have asked that we set aside this time to focus on our own spiritual walk with God, something much easier done without children. As hard as we may try, our mommy instincts will kick in, and we will be distracted with children in the building. So please, no children!
