Annual Women’s Retreat

Each Spring the Women of Grace Avenue gather for a weekend of connection, celebration and relaxation. Email Laura Echols-Richter at with questions.
Here is the 2017 information:

Do you ever feel caught between your “To Do” lists and a desire to simply be still and fully present with God and those you love? The drive to have it all and the constant weight of expectations drains our souls and harms our bodies. Our program throughout the weekend will be based on Shauna Niequist’s book entitled Present Over Perfect. Laura Echols-Richter will encourage us to explore letting go of the expectations that bend us over and open ourselves more fully to God’s invitation to be present. Come be immersed in Christ’s redeeming love and God’s transforming grace. On Saturday night, we will share dinner and have time for fellowship. On Sunday, we will close with breakfast buffet, small groups & closing worship.
