After cancelling our 2020 retreat, we are happy to announce that we will be gathering once again for Retreat 2021, offering the perfect opportunity for peaceful rest and renewal for all Christian women. We hope that you will plan to join us for one, two, or three days of fellowship, recharging our batteries, and strengthening our faith at the beautiful Christ the
King Center in the scenic hills of rural Washington County. We look forward to a time of renewal, reflection, and reconnecting with friends from whom we have been too long apart. To respect the safety of all present, we will be observing CDC guidelines in regards to Covid-19.
With Thursday arrival, again this year, we are offering an optional extra, unstructured day of rest and relaxation, time for you to spend as you like, renewing friendships or making new ones, sharing a time of fellowship, spending quiet time with God, all while enjoying the beauty of NY in the fall on the vast grounds of the retreat center. There are trails to explore, quiet spots for time alone, lovely rooms if napping is on the agenda, and a
row of comfortable rocking chairs just waiting for you. Or plan to join us on Friday afternoon for our evening program, staying overnight for the Saturday events. If that does not work for you, please join us for Saturday.
We are pleased to welcome Marie Monville as our keynote speaker on Friday night and Saturday. As the young widow of the man who entered an Amish schoolhouse and opened fire, killing five young girls and injuring five more, Marie’s life was instantly changed. Her story is one of the redemptive and often incomprehensible love of God, and how it can affect those in the midst of even the most horrific tragedies. We hope you can join us as we hear Marie’s witness to the power of God’s love.
Also joining us this year will be Pastor Pamela Bolton who will lead a Bible study and will serve us Communion, and an advocate from Wellspring of Saratoga County, will share with us the work being done with victims of domestic violence.
Check-in will begin at 1:00PM, in the Welcome Center. If you choose to arrive earlier, for lunch (for an additional $14), please note that on the registration form. On Friday evening, following dinner together at 6:00 PM, the structured activities will begin for our weekend retreat. “Daytimers” registration will be at 9:00AM on Saturday morning, in the foyer of the Great Hall. Arrive early if you’d like, and join us for breakfast at 8:00 AM, for an
additional $12. At Christ the King Center, the main lodging facility will be The King’s Inn, a beautiful one-story building with a lovely, comfortable gathering area, double rooms with private baths, and a sunny porch complete with those rocking chairs. The King’s Inn also has two handicapped-accessible rooms. Single rooms are available for an additional cost.
We hope that you will join us as we offer additional opportunities for enrichment and growth as Christian women.
Scholarship funds are available.
