Grace Avenue 2018 Women’s Retreat – Brave Enough
Saturday, April 14—Sunday, April 15, 2018
We talk a lot about fear in our world today.  Does your fear ever hold you back?  Does our fear continue to isolate us?  How would you be different if you could let go?  The courage to change doesn’t have to mean cliff-diving out of your comfort zone.  Our program throughout the weekend will focus on the courage to be brave enough for yourself, for God and for your calling right where you are.
