RETREAT:

Melissa Campbell and Summer Shore

Join us this spring for “Royal: Finding Your Identity in Christ” with speakers Melissa Campbell and Summer Shore from  Revive Ministries. This retreat will focus on helping women find their passion, purpose and power in Christ. Sessions will include “The Power of a Name”, “Renewing Our Passion for Christ”, “Created for Purpose” and “Empowered Through the Spirit”. There will also be great worship, a fun craft activity, and lots of free time to connect with other women!

The dates are May 20-22, 2022 from 7pm Friday to 10am Sunday, and cost is $150 or $50 for Saturday only.  There are also a few partial scholarships available. Registration for the weekend includes 2 nights lodging, 4 meals (3 on Saturday and Sunday breakfast) and all materials. The Saturday only option includes Saturday lunch and dinner and all materials.

We will be in the Black Hills Center at  Black Lake Bible Camp and our overnight accommodations will be in the  Lakeside Lodge. Out of courtesy to others, nursing infants will only be allowed during the day on Saturday (no overnight accommodations). Click here to register: Registration
