Join us for our 2018 Women's Retreat | April 13-15
2017 Women's Retreat | March 24-26 Living the Loved Life: Intimacy with the Lord through His Word
Dates & Prices Registration is full.
Arrive any time after 4 p.m. Friday
First activity begins at 7:30 p.m.
Weekend concludes Sunday at 11 a.m. after Morning Prayer Service
God’s word is the most certain place to hear His voice. When Jesus prayed to the Father, as recorded in John 17:16-17, He said "They do not belong to this world any more than I do. Make them holy by Your truth; teach them Your word, which is truth."
We often go to God's Word to measure our performance rather than to experience intimacy with the One who loves us and to have our hearts transformed by it. Our retreat will give us clear teaching on how to fill our hearts with God's very particular love for us and with His whole word so that we can "hear and see the Father" just as Jesus did, discerning the truth of all other ideas by the Bible, His plumb line. Moreover, we'll have the opportunity to experience and to share what the Lord will have shown us. Come - let's look into God's love letter and really get to know the Author!
For the 5th year in a row, we we will return to Meadowkirk in Middleburg for our Women's Retreat. Elizabeth (Betsey) Mulloy is a gifted Bible teacher who pulls jewels from the Scriptures in her teaching along with wonderful nuggets of wisdom from heroes of the faith. She received a BA from Stephens College and an MA in English Literature from the University of Missouri where she also taught. Moving to the Washington, DC area in 1972, she freelanced for the federal government, the American Institute of Architects, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation, writing a history of the Trust and co-authoring America’s Forgotten Architecture. Her articles have appeared in Today’s Christian Woman, the Catholic Digest, and The Hidden Hand of God, a Guidepost anthology.

Quiet Days: A quiet day for reflection, silence and lunch fellowship. Being with God in silence gives God space to orient our souls towards Him and His kingdom. Like any relationship, listening is vital. Where do you have silence with God in your life?
“The discipline of silence invites us to leave behind the competing demands of our outer world for time alone with Jesus. Silence offers a way of paying attention to the Spirit of God and what he brings to the surface of our souls.” Adele Calhoun, Spiritual Disciplines Handbook, pgs. 122-123.
Open House: At our 2016 open house on September 25th at the home of Claire Edwards, five ladies introduced books that had nourished and guided them in an area of life.
