Women of Hope Spring 2019 Retreat

Krista GehrerUncategorized


Be still, and know that I am God…” (Ps 46:10) In our fast paced, activity-filled lives that’s often easier said than done. Who has time to slow down, to be still? You do! Join us for our spring women’s retreat REST & RENEW.  We will be looking at the importance of learning to be still.

We will discover stillness through REST as we enjoy free time spent in fellowship with friends and enjoying the activities available at our venue.

We will also RENEW our understanding of being still through the teaching sessions and small group discussions.

So join us for REST & RENEW as we become still and know that He is God.


Timber Lakes Camp & Retreat Center is peaceful and serine, an escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.  It is located at 1375 Rock Creek Rd, Williamsburg, Kansas  (1 hour 40 minute drive from Hope).  Due to the drive time, we recommend carpooling or joining us in one of the church vans.
