2024 Weekend Getaway

April 5 @ 9:00 am - April 6 @ 6:00 pm

Some days our lives feel like the houses Jesus talked about in Matthew 7. The wind and rain beat against every side, and sometimes we hold our breath, wondering if we can withstand another storm. Yet Jesus told the crowd that anyone who listened to his teaching and put it into practice would be like a person who built her house on a solid rock. This is the kind of faith we need—resilient in the face of every storm.

We are eager to be with you at our annual Weekend Getaway where we’ll worship together and learn from incredible speakers. This year we hope to reinforce your faith and help you withstand the world that tries to tear it down.

As followers of Jesus, we need Resilient Faith now more than ever before. Our prayer is that each of us would leave the Weekend Getaway with stronger, more resilient faith than before.

We look forward to seeing you there.

When Your Faith is Thin with Mary Lowman

We know from Scripture that it’s impossible to please God without faith, but life has a way of attacking our faith—draining its strength and stealing its joy. No one walks the pathways of this world without experiencing seasons of doubt or questioning her faith. So, when our faith runs very thin and seems almost nonexistent, what can we do? How can we reconnect our faith with our feelings, so that we can face the vicissitudes and uncertainties of our lives with strong faith? In this workshop, we’ll talk about this and discover ways to build our faith even in the most challenging seasons.

Keys to Building a Resilient Life with Lisa Bishop

We all react to life events in different ways. While some people become overwhelmed by everyday hassles, failures, and life’s unexpected circumstances, others react positively to the most challenging experiences. Why do some people withstand or even thrive in difficult life events, while others buckle under life’s pressures? In this workshop you will learn how to become more resilient and bounce-back from adversity in your everyday life.

 

Who I Am with Lauren Stibgen 

Every day we are bombarded by voices that measure our value and worth. Some of the noise is external—recognition or reprimand from our boss, a raise or demotion, and so much more. Sometimes, though, the voice is internal. It comes from our insecurities or is the voice of the enemy who wants to steal, kill, and destroy. All the while, the Lord delights in us and speaks love and truth over our lives. In this workshop, we will refocus on what God says of us and cancel the noise and false narratives of achievement focused work culture. We’ll also learn how to write our “I Am” statements by diving straight into Scripture.

 

Designing a Life, Anchored in Joy with Juni Felix 

Jesus says in John 15:11, “I have told you these things so that my joy will be in you and your joy would be made complete.” So why are so many women living a life without joy? Join us for a paradigm shifting, practical workshop. We will cover effective proven Tiny Habits© for Joy and explore God’s plan for and definition of success.
