Mini-Retreat: October 9th, 2010

Renew, Refresh and the Lord!

Women’s Mini-Retreat
Grace Evangelical Church
Saturday, October 9th, 2010, 8:30am-1:00pm

Why a Retreat?
As women fulfilling many roles in our busy lives, we often feel the need to renew, refresh and relax. Join the Women of Grace as we take a morning to seek physical and spiritual refreshment!

What’s in store?
During this mini-retreat we will have some “in house experts” share on the topics of food, nutrition, health, exercise and wellness. They will also give advice on being refreshed as a young mom, and how to maintain intimacy in your marriage.

It will be a fun morning!  After lunch, if you want to stay, we will be wrapping shoe boxes for Samaritan’s Purse.  These boxes will be available to the rest of the congregation for our annual collection.
