I'm excited to open registration for our 2021 Fall Women's Retreat. We'll be gathering at the Bar M Ranch outside of Pendleton, OR for a weekend of pure refreshment and a time to refocus from the cares and struggles of life.

Our theme this year is "Be Still" from Exodus 14:14, which is a very appropriate and descriptive phrase for a weekend meant to strengthen our faith! The entire verse reads: "The Lord your God will fight for you, you need only to BE STILL"

Do you need that encouragement? Do you have a friend, or sister, or mother of daughter that needs that encouragement? It's time to register yourself and your friends and cross off those dates on our calendars for spiritual renewal!

Below you will find some information about our schedule and other details followed by a place to register and make payment right here online.

We are praying for you already!

We're excited to meet together in September at the Ranch!
