The Unexpected Power of Encouragement- Women’s Retreat! April 8, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — zellner @ 9:14 pm

“I’m worn out!” “I am not sure how much more I can handle” “I am lonely.” “I need more girlfriend time- the way my life is going I could use the encouragement” “I just can’t see how this circumstance will work out” “I am feeling hopeless” “There is just so much on me.”

These kinds of phrases swirl through conversations and prayer requests all the time. We are a worn out group in search of real connection and real encouragement.

If I could encourage you to do something for your own walk with the Lord this year and for your relationships in this community, I would encourage you to attend the Women’s conference that we are hosting on Friday and Saturday, May 2nd and 3rd. Pam Caldwell, a bible teacher and women’s retreat speaker from Birmingham , AL is coming to our church to challenge us in the area of Biblical Encouragement.

She has been studying this topic all year long with her own biblestudy that she leads at Faith Presbyterian Church and she has seen how crucial biblical encouragement is to a believer- how important community is to a believer.


She is going to focus on Ephesians 4:29 “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.”

We will spend time considering what unwholesome talk is and what the root of it is. We will see what is unique about a community of believers who speak hope into one another’s lives. We will study God’s word together and grow in our love for Him and what He has done for us.

The schedule will be :

Friday, May 2nd  Registration from 6-6:30pm. Session #1 6:30-7:30pm and a dessert/ coffee bar to follow.

Saturday, May 3rd   Session #2 9-10:00 am   Session #3 10:15-11:15 am We will have a salad luncheon following and snacks available all day. It’s free- no cost to you!

My prayer is that God would use this conference to show us how great His love for us is, how sufficient His word is and how beautiful are the relationships that He has granted us.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment or call our church office at 662 8871975.
