Lake Yale Women’s Retreat
Recently, the ladies of the Women’s Care Center were able to attend the Lake Yale Baptist Conference Center for the annual Reflections Women’s Conference, thanks to several generous donors. It was a wonderful time to “pause, reflect and refresh” and that is exactly what the ladies were able to do.
Whitney Capps of Proverbs 31 Ministries is a national speaker, author and founder of Simple Seminary and was the key speaker for the weekend. The ladies felt so many of the points shared were “just for them”. She used God’s truth, personal trials, triumphs, and a little humor to make a huge impact in the hearts of these ladies.
As always, Pastor Stephen Wolgamott and the FBC Praise & Worship team were absolutely amazing! We are definitely spoiled by the talent and passion displayed by everyone at FBC! Pastor Stephen does have a way of ministering to our very souls!
The ladies also enjoyed the Breakout Sessions, the beautiful sunrise each morning, the cafeteria (which meant no cooking) Yay! It was delicious, by the way, and the free time! Some enjoyed restful time in the hammocks, quiet time on the dock, visiting with new friends, bible journaling and an adventurous one enjoyed the ropes course! It was truly a great time for all!
Sunday morning with Suzy Lea was awesome as she shared 4 Principles of Prayer. Our ladies are blessed to have a class each week with Ms. Suzy and they look forward to her teaching. She reminded them to let Jesus take the reins and guide them. How beautiful!
For most of our ladies, this was the first time to experience a Women’s retreat and it was sure to leave some lasting memories of just how good God is. We are truly blessed at the Women’s Care Center and if you would like to find out more about what we do here or perhaps how you could partner with us either prayerfully or financially, contact our Women’s Care Center Director Sherry Stewart at (352) 787-8929.
