Illinois Conference Women’s Retreat
Sep 29 - Sep 30
Our theme this year is “Beauty in the Brokenness!” We will explore how we find beauty in all kinds of brokenness when women of all types and ages gather at the Illinois Conference Women’s Retreat at Pilgrim Park Camp, starting Friday, September 29 and ending Saturday afternoon, September 30.
This 23-hour get-a-way is an opportunity to relax while engaging God’s Holy Spirit as we reconnect with old friends, make new friends, and even bring along some friends. There is plenty of time to unwind, study the Bible in experiential ways, get to know one another, work on a service project tentatively planned for Project Linus, walk around the park and the labyrinth, take a nap, and hopefully, shop the great selection from Ten Thousand Villages. Remember, even Jesus needed to get away for a while and we do also so we can be fully present the rest of the time.
All bed linens and towels will be provided so just bring along casual clothing and shoes, personal items, flashlight, umbrella (just in case), and your Bible. If you want, bring snacks, soft drinks, etc. to share. Check-in is on Friday, September 29 at 4:30 p.m. (supper is at 6:00). Late arrivals are okay. We’re homeward bound on Saturday, September 30 around 3:30 p.m.
Registration fee is $150.00 which includes retreat materials, dinner and lodging on Friday, breakfast, and lunch on Saturday. Please register ASAP but no later than Friday, September 15. Financial assistance is available if needed. Please contact Tara via email or phone: 815-447-2390.
