AWAKEN: Mind, Body, and Soul Retreat

Putting the Pieces Back Together

"All of us get broken in some way, but what really matters is how we get back up and put the pieces back together." - unknown

Do you remember what it was like to have a slumber party with your girl friends as a child? You wore your favorite comfy pajamas, played games, ate snacks, and had girl talk. In many cases, you stayed up into the wee hours of the morning because time was not a factor. Well, we are going to recreate that experience at our AWAKEN: Mind, Body, and Soul Retreat! We have some exciting things planned to AWAKEN our Mind, Body, and Soul .

"For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago ." Ephesians 2:10 NLT

mission project

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Together, we will create care packages to donate to Safe Alliance, a non-profit organization that aims to provide hope and healing to those impacted by domestic violence and sexual assault.  It is requested that you review the Client Needs List and bring a few items of your choice to include in the care packages. We have partnered with businesses that will also provide donations for this project.

*Please note Safe Alliance only accepts new, full-sized personal hygiene items to ensure their clients have what they need for a longer period of time.
