Joy in the Journey - May 24-26, 2019

In the beautiful setting of Niagara –on the Lake, Ontario, our next Women’s Ministry Retreat will be held on May 24—May 26, 2019.  Niagara College is the facility, its residence our home for the weekend.

Planning is still ongoing, but we have engaged a wonderful keynote speaker—Wendy Farha.  Wendy is a gifted singer, songwriter, musician, comedian & inspirational speaker. She has been writing songs & performing since 1978. Wendy began by playing in local coffeehouses, churches and hospitals.

A gifted communicator, Wendy shares her songs, stories and her hilarious sense of humor to entertain & inspire her audiences. Wendy’s diagnosis of clinical depression in 2000 and then breast cancer in 2009 has given her an empathy for those suffering from sickness, mental illness, and from the many difficulties we experience in this life.  She will share her music, comedy & her life story - an inspirational, faith-filled message of hope & JOY through her journey which can be a model for our own journey !!

Our chaplain for the weekend will be Pastor Karen Kuhnert, currently serving St. James, St. Jacobs, ON.  We look forward to lively and inspirational worship for the weekend lead by Karen and her worship team.

Breakout sessions will include Bible Study, Arts & Crafts; and Yoga to name a few.  A full schedule of the weekend will be available in the Fall this year once all sessions are confirmed. We will offer a couple of off-site trips into the Niagara Area—including a wine tour!

Saturday evening will feature the “Red Shoe Banquet” a themed, fun-filled evening for all.  What does “Red Shoes” have to do with it?  You have to come and find out!  Mark the dates on your calendar and start saving your pennies!  Registration forms will be sent out in December, and we are planning to put a website to aid in the registration process.

We look forward to seeing you there!
