JOY Women's Retreat

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”  Romans 15:13

JOY!  Who doesn't need a little joy in their life?  Whether you are seeking joy, or you have an abundance of joy and want to share it with your fellow Christ Church sisters, please join us for the third annual Women’s Retreat.  This year, our retreat will be held at the Summit at Haw River State Park on March 23 and 24.

We have been on the planning committee for the past two years, with Alice Kunka as our leader.  Since Alice has retired, we are taking on this fun assignment. One of our favorite things about this retreat is meeting new friends!  Our church is large, and with four different worship services, there may be women within our church that you may not have gotten the opportunity to connect with yet. This retreat is the perfect opportunity to branch out and broaden your community.

Our goal is for attendees to grow in their relationship with Christ and with other women of Christ Church.  We will spend our weekend worshipping, learning from others, listening to inspiring speakers, being in community with each other, and enjoying a movie night—and, as a bonus, you will not have to cook or clean dishes, so there’s that!

This year, one of our speakers will be Lucy Wellmaker.  According to Lucy, she is an educator, speaker, counselor, coach, trainer, and group facilitator.  She has a passion for working with people who want to improve their lives, and we look forward to hearing about how we can find more joy in ours! To find out more about Lucy, check out her website at

So, grab your friends, sisters, and moms—women of all ages and stages are welcome—and come join us for a weekend full of JOY!
