Here are the details for the super fun weekend we have planned at Camp JIM! The fall color is going to be beautiful, and we are trusting that our time is going to be both fun and refreshing!
Theme: "Rescued, Awakened, Adorned--Responding to God's Grace." Our speaker, Diane Soxman, is from Baxter, MN and attends Lakewood Church. She has spoken at several retreats for women, and loves digging into God's Word and mining for nuggets that can impact and encourage. She and her husband Al, a retired police officer, served for 10 years with International Messengers, a mission organization. Their role was to care for the US and International staff of the organization, encouraging and listening to them and giving them a "safe place" to talk. Diane is eager to be both a communicator and a listener at our Ladies Retreat!
What to Bring:
A relaxed, open heart & mind,
Bible & pen,
jacket, indoor & outdoor clothing, (think comfy)
bedding with sheet to cover either double or twin mattress,
a camping chair-- let us know if you need one AND
(Optional Items: snacks, board games/puzzles, coloring books, fan or noise machine if you're a light sleeper. And anything else that brings you joy).
What to Expect: Time alone with God and time together with ladies! Encouragement and teaching from God's Word and praise & worship during our session times. Optional planned activities like games, laser tag, campfires, crafts, etc, and free time for hiking, boating, resting, or whatever else you'd like to do.
