Feeling dried up? Withered? As women, we need opportunities to hit “pause” on our daily rhythms and gather together to be encouraged, equipped, and strengthened in our faith.

This retreat is for the woman who needs replenishment. We so often run tirelessly for a prize in this world that’s out of reach, which ends up being ultimately unsatisfying. We search for purpose and meaning, only to be left empty-handed.  We end up exhausted from chasing after perfection: We’re drinking from an empty well.

This retreat is designed to help women achieve a life that is abundant and well-watered. Jesus is the Well we must drink from – daily. He is the living water that satisfies and fills our empty cup.

“Because of Christ, your story has been rewritten, redefined, and redeemed. Your ultimate goal is a well-watered, abundant, and overflowing life. So don’t waste your time dwelling on how shriveled up your faith has become. Instead, drink deeply from the Well and embrace the glory of a fresh start.” – Gretchen Saffles

We know there’s a lot to coordinate – from carpooling and childcare to saving up for the cost and giving up the bulk of your weekend. We encourage you to give your concerns for the weekend to Jesus, embrace all that He has waiting for you, and join us!
