Each October the ladies from the Valley look forward to our special time to retreat from the world. We spend nearly 24 hours together singing, praying, listening, discussing, fellowshipping, sharing, crafting, eating and sometimes sleeping.
This year our Ladies’ Retreat, which was held on October 20-21, had the theme “God is Able” taken from Ephesians 3:20.
“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”
This powerful little verse packs a huge punch when applied to our walk as Christians.
Throughout the years we have had many speakers come and share with us. Most of them have been from congregations around Alaska. This year we were blessed to have Dana Jaworski from Anchor Point. Dana gave us four wonderful lessons to remind us that God’s incredible power working in us is able to do more than we could ever imagine. All of Dana’s lessons were recorded and are available to watch at the following link: Ladies Retreat Lessons on YouTube
The food, the decorations, and the take-home favors were over-the-top, as usual. But the spirit of unity, the beautiful hearts and the joy of being together sharing God’s beautiful Word was priceless.
Thank you, ladies, for another great retreat!
