Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!” Luke 1:45 

Our Annual Women's Retreat is June 2-4, 2017, and will be held at beautiful Tuscarora Inn in Mount Bethel, Pennsylvania. This annual event is for women of all ages. This is a great opportunity to make new friends and get deep into God's Word is a comfortable, casual environment. 

This year's guest speaker is Sharifa Hayle Stevens! Sharifa grew up at CBC and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Columbia University before moving to Dallas, Texas, where she received a Master of Theology degree from Dallas Theological Seminary. She currently serves as a writer for the Creative Ministries Department of Insight for Living Ministries. Sharifa is passionate about worship through music and the intersection of faith and culture. She is wife to a Renaissance man and mother to two lively boys. 

Our retreat theme is "Walk This Way - Women Who Walk With God." Living by faith in the Lord looks like a daily walk—in fact, both testaments speak of faith in terms of “walking with God.” Some of the best "power walkers" in the Bible were women. They tripped, dipped, and stumbled through hot messes in pursuit of God. But they kept going. It’s as if they had a spiritual GPS to keep them focused on their destination, despite the presenting obstacles. During our retreat, we will trek with some of the power walkers of faith, and get our own feet ready for the journey God has for us.

Retreat registration ranges from $205 to $345, based on room choice and number of people per room. Please consider having a roommate so more people can attend!
