Women’s Retreat | June 2-4, 2023

REFRESH | Acts 3:19-21

Taking time to not just rest, but to reflect, to recharge, and to truly be refreshed is hard. We all have responsibilities and obligations, but are we allowing God to work through us, or are we running on our own steam? 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 that show us we’re not alone,
  • small group discussions to learn together, and
  • free time for fellowship and recreational activities

…all wrapped up in thoughtful engagement and joyful laughter.
