Follow our Facebook event page where we  announce retreat details and you can directly invite your friends there. We will be revealing more #FlockRetreat2017 behind the scenes work on Instagram during the months leading up to the event as well. 

IS THE RETREAT ONLY FOR MOMS?
No. We try to cover all of the bases when it comes to Christian women: in their 20s, single, married without children, mothers of littles, empty-nesters, etc. We are confident women in all places of life will find enjoyment in the retreat! 


DO I HAVE TO BRING A PHYSICAL TICKET TO THE RETREAT?
No. We will have your name on the guest list. Please bring along your driver license or other identification. 
 

WHEN IS THE TICKET DEADLINE? 
Overnight lodging tickets are limited and available to purchase until September 30th or when max capacity is met. Saturday only tickets will be available to purchase until October 20th. 
 

WHAT ARE THE LODGING ARRANGEMENTS?  
Each attendee will have an assigned bed in a lodge. There are some lodges that have a mix of queen beds, twin beds, and even bunk beds (only a few!). If you are willing to share a queen bed or bunk bed with a friend please let us know when you select your ticket options.


HOW CAN I MAKE SURE THAT I SHARE A LODGE WITH MY FRIEND(S)?
When you purchase your ticket, type the names of your friends that you want to lodge with to best ensure that you will be together. After ticket sales have ended we will contact you with your assigned lodge and a site map. 


CAN I BRING FOOD AND DRINK ALONG? 
Yes! Each lodge conveniently has a refrigerator, oven, microwave, and dishwasher. They are also furnished with cups, silverware, and dinnerware. We do ask that when you checkout you leave the lodge as you found it and wash the last load of dishes in the dishwasher. 
 

IS THE RETREAT CASUAL OR FORMAL? WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? 
The retreat is definitely casual. Bring warm comfy clothes - yoga pants and flannel tops if you like best! We also recommend that you bring along a winter jacket, hat, and gloves as Wisconsin weather can change rapidly. 


WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY? 
There are no refunds allowed with this type of event. We will allow you to swap the ticket with another person but you are responsible for finding them and notifying us of the change. Thank you for understanding!

Time Out For Moms - Celebrate Your Seasons!

Time Out for Moms is celebrating their 10th anniversary! Come join as we rejoice in being moms, women, and followers of Jesus.

Time Out for Moms is a ministry of Good Shepherd in West Bend, Wisconsin that serves women in their congregation and community. Throughout the year they hold several events and Bible studies.

Amanda Rose of Holy Hen House will present on the seasons of being a woman.

She will lead women directly to the source of God's Word for direction and comfort.


How do we continue to produce fruit in every season?

What are the challenges and blessings of different stages of life? 

What do all the seasons of life have in common? 


Also, Amanda will close with a prayer meditation on the piano for women to be still and filled in Christ as we return back to our homes and communities. 


Come and see by registering here

 

*Coffee, tea, and delicious breakfast sides will be served. 

That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither—whatever they do prospers.
— Psalm 1:3

Holy Hen House Symposium @ St. Paul's

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
— Colossians 3:17


Join the chatter! St. Paul's Lutheran Church in St. James Minnesota is gathering women of all stages together for their 13th Ladies' Symposium. 

The theme of the symposium is "Chatter that Matters" which is based off of Holy Hen House blog's mission and tagline. 


TOPICS:
"Ladies of Legacy: Why Your Chatter Matters" by Amber Albee Swenson // In this session we will be looking at women of the Bible to see how they used their mouths to glorify God or to get into trouble. As a woman who has lots of experience taking my foot out of my mouth, I'll lead the search through scripture to find practical ways to make sure what leaves our mouth is a blessing, and not a curse. 

"Chatter that Mentors and Matters to a Mentee" by Mary Abel // Mentoring is mentioned often in the Bible and Titus has some directives about how women are to mentor other women. In this study we will go into the three verses that house a treasure trove of guidelines for women. Leave with new insights on getting started and moving forward to bless others with your special kind of love and caring!

"Chatter that Matters in a Noisy Social Media World" by Amanda Rose // Alert! Beep! Notification! Social media is used to share updates, ideas, and opinions but are we using our chatter online to glorify Jesus? Holy Hen House, an online ministry, is made up of imperfect women spurred on by God's perfect grace to share chatter that matters in a noisy world. Let's discuss ways we can use our influence online to reach into homes with the gospel!


MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT: 
Come hear Amanda Rose's original songs, arrangements of favorite hymns, and the stories that inspired them. Her unique blend of soul, choral, and folk music strikes a chord and her lyrics point to her Savior whose story is the basis of it all.


FOOD + DRINK:
The Symposium includes morning coffee with baked goods, a luncheon, and desserts. Before noon women will travel to St. James' Legion (620 1st Ave S) for a catered lunch and the remaining topics. 


SHOP:
The Holy Hen House pop up shop will be featured along with a Martin Luther College book sale. 


REGISTER: 
Cost is $25 and is due by November 7th! Look for the registration pdf to print off and mail in the comments.
