Women’s Retreat 2017

The Women’s Ministry Team at Harvest works diligently to provide opportunities for connecting in fellowship throughout the year, culminating in our biggest event of the year, our destination retreat. This year our theme was “Community through Connecting.”

A few weekends ago 31 women came together for an amazing weekend in Lincoln City at The Dawn Treader Retreat House.

During our time together we pursued the idea of community through time spent in individual solitude with God, discovering what it’s like to draw nearer to Him in silence and rest, and in time spent together connecting with our sisters, drawing closer to each other.

It’s beautiful to see God working through the hearts of women.

We worshiped together, prayed for one another, encouraged each other and, of course, ate our fair share of bacon and other delicious meals.

What a blessing to be able to go away for a weekend, learn what God has for each of us, and come back refreshed and renewed in Him.

We are grateful for God’s timing and leading over the past several months as we prepared for our 2017 retreat, and for each woman in attendance.


We are already looking forward to our 2018 Fall destination retreat to Lincoln City once again.

In the meantime, be watching for more events in the near future, like our “2nd annual Sock-ing Stuffers Exchange” planned for Dec 10th and our annual “All-church Chili Feed” in January.

Plus, for the first time ever we are hosting a repeat of this years retreat in the Spring to be held at Harvest Christian Church…more details coming soon.
