God has invited each of us into an intimate relationship with Him, but we struggle to experience the intimacy He desires. What keeps us from this intimacy with God, and what does it really look like? Join your Cherrydale sisters for this retreat and you’ll experience:

  • biblical community and personal growth through worship and prayer,
  • practical sessions and personal testimonies,
  • small group discussions, and
  • time for fellowship and recreational activities.
