2017 Women Rising Strong in Christ Retreat

Mark your calendars for the 2017 Women’s Retreat on December 1–3 at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park!


As children of God we are gifted to serve and graced to live in love. And we all know falls, disappointments, and struggle. What does it take to get back up? We will explore how these critical moments and how the stories we create about them influence not only our self-understanding but also our actions and behaviors. Are we stuck in ways of thinking that don’t serve the Body of Christ or us in life-giving ways? Through short lectures, self-exploration, and small group discussion we will explore new patterns of critical awareness and practices that will empower us as children of God to write a ‘brave new ending.’ You will leave with tools and practices to begin cultivating right away. Prayer, Scripture, and fellowship will guide our time. Come ready to laugh, learn, and connect with other women as we wholeheartedly rise strong in discipleship.

This retreat builds on the previous women’s retreat but is new information utilizing Dr. Brené Brown’s newest research with faith. You don’t need to have attended last year’s retreat to connect, learn, and grow together in faith and fellowship.


There will also be opportunities for Christmas shopping in Estes, winter sports, reading by a fireplace, watching the snowfall (maybe) from a warm lodge, sitting peacefully, and laughing hysterically playing games. Come ready to get your Advent on!
