"FLOCK" to Alaska WELS Women's Retreat 2019
WOMEN OF ALL SEASONS UNITE!
ALASKA WELS WOMEN’S RETREAT
FAIRBANKS, ALASKA | SEPTEMBER 27-29th 2019
The hens are flying north to Alaska this fall! We are calling women of faith to gather together around God’s Word and his beautiful creation in Fairbanks from September 27-29th. The retreat is hosted by Light of the World Lutheran Church and they are praying you can stay the whole weekend, relax/sightsee on Saturday, and join worship on Sunday! We know the distance can be incredibly far even if you live in Alaska, but time invested with women that believe the same thing is worth every minute. It is our aim to strengthen your friendships so that when you go home you know that you are not alone and have another sister to point you to Jesus. You see, when we get together we don’t just share small talk, we get to the meat of God’s Word where the Holy Spirit works on our hearts and impacts lives eternally.
La Quinta Inn & Suites Fairbanks, Alaska
$75 before August 15/$85 after August 15

The retreat theme is Women of All Seasons Unite: Spur One Another On! What are some barriers and solutions to fellowship between women? How can we serve God and others together?
Mel and I will be speaking on a variety of topics to unite women of faith including: How to Find and Be a Mentor, Fan Your Flame, and Spur One Another On! I am also happy to add that I will be playing music and leading women in song throughout the retreat.
