Women of all ages are invited to join us for a favorite tradition - Women's Retreat! We will stay in condos at The Grand at St. Simons.

This is a great way to enjoy time with your friends and to get to know new people whom you usually do not spend time with.
Our theme for the women’s retreat this year is ‘Balance for Better’. Tracey McMillan will be leading us as we discuss and practice mindfulness, shifting our perspective to find more peace in the challenges of everyday life. Tracey will be leading from “Finding Your Balance: An 11 Lesson Bible Study” by Sandy Cooper. There will be discussion around the book, restorative yoga on the beach, guided breath and mindfulness, bracelet making, and of course lots of free time to relax, enjoy the beach, and spend time with friends!
