Women’s Retreat 2023

We are pleased to have Brigette Vanhuisstede lead us again at this retreat. She will speak on “Truly here I have seen him who looks after me.” Genesis 16: 13b (ESV).
Together we will focus on the stories/ characters/ circumstances of Genesis 16 and 21; what they reveal about the God who leads His people (the sojourners) back Home.
We are all characters and sojourners traveling through this life and seeking to find our way Home. The stories in the Bible give us hope, direction, and a challenge to trust in the everlasting God who is leading us.

Join us Saturday April 15th, 10:00 am to 8:00pm  at New Street Church for a day of worship, teaching and fellowship as a community and to hear how we are sojourners on the way home . Snacks, lunch and dinner will be provided.
Worship will be lead by Stephanie Scholman, Grace Dekker and Alida Glasbergen

Expect to make new friends, share a cup of coffee, laugh, cry, and discover new insights from the Bible. The setting is casual, and you can participate as you feel comfortable! Previous Bible knowledge is not expected.
