2018 Women’s Retreat is Coming!

Posted on

Do you ever feel that your prayer skills are inadequate?  Do you feel guilt when you realize that you don’t pray often enough or at all?  How often is enough?  How do you pray?  When do you pray?  What do you pray about?  How do you know if God is listening?

The Congregational Care Committee, together with the Women’s Fellowship Group is planning a short Women’s Retreat on the topic of Prayer for Saturday, March 17, 2018 from 9:30 am until about 2:30 pm.  We hope you will consider joining us for a thoughtful and inspirational time of fellowship.

The theme of the retreat, The Art of Prayer,  will be based on the book “Help, Thanks, Wow – The Three Essential Prayers” by Anne Lamott.  The day will be filled with singing, drama, discussion, sharing, art, praying (of course!), and will include a delicious luncheon professionally prepared and served by our in-house chef (!!) a few of our fantastic men.

Advance registration is requested and can be handled by contacting Sharon Jackson (sej832@aol.com) or Sue Felpel (lsfelpel@yahoo.com) or the church office (office@niskayunareformed.org).  There is a small fee of $8.00 to cover the cost of materials and lunch.  We would ask that registrations be made as soon as possible, but not later than Monday, March 12.

It is not necessary to read the Anne Lamott’s book before the retreat, but for those who wish to do so, you can order a copy at https://www.amazon.com/Help-Thanks-Wow-Essential-Prayers/dp/1594631298/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1516992834&sr=8-1   It’s available in hardcover, Kindle edition, or as an audio book.  If you’d like us to order a copy for you, the cost would be about $12.50, so let us know if you would prefer this option.
