elizabeth_keeler_rotator.jpgWomen's Lenten Retreat

March 2–3 at St. John’s
Register by February 20!

The Reverend Elizabeth Keeler will guide us as we explore “Time for Every Matter Under Heaven” (Ecclesiastes 3:1). The focus of this retreat is to remind us that time is the creation and gift of a generous God. Experiencing time from an understanding of abundance, rather than scarcity, then becomes our grateful response to God’s generosity. Please gift yourself this time to rest, consider, reflect and pray. The cost is $30. Contact Margaret Kerfoot to register. Learn more HERE.
