More than ever, kindness is desperately needed in our world today!
We will explore kindness when women of all types and ages gather at the Illinois Conference Women’s Retreat at Pilgrim Park Camp, starting Friday, September 30 and ending Saturday
afternoon, October 1. This 23-hour get-a-way is an opportunity to relax while engaging God’s Holy Spirit as we reconnect with old friends, make new friends, and even bring along some friends. There is plenty of time to unwind, study the Bible in experiential ways, get to know one another, work on a service project tentatively planned for Project Linus, walk around the park and the
labyrinth, take a nap, and shop the great selection from Global Villages. Remember, even Jesus needed to get away for a while and we do also so we can be fully present the rest of the time.
All bed linens and towels will be provided so just bring along casual clothing and shoes, personal items, flashlight, umbrella (just in case), and your Bible. If you want, bring snacks, soft drinks, etc. to share. Check-in is on Friday, September 30 at 4:30 p.m. (supper is at 6:00). Late arrivals are okay. We’re homeward bound on Saturday, October 1 around 3:30 p.m.
Registration fee is $140.00 which includes retreat materials, dinner and lodging on Friday, breakfast and lunch on Saturday. Please register ASAP but no later than Friday, September 16, so everything will be ready when we arrive. Financial assistance is available.
All participants must be fully vaccinated and boosted as we follow all Covid guidelines.
Hope to see you at the retreat!
