Greenmonte Women's Retreat: September 11 & 12
On September 11th and 12th (Friday evening and Saturday morning), we will be holding a Greenmonte Women's Retreat at a beautiful private home in Swoope, Virginia. This event will be held entirely outdoors (weather permitting) on a spacious patio and lawn. The theme of our retreat is "Beauty from Brokenness," and our special guest speaker, Kerry Shuey, will be sharing on this topic. Dinner will be served on Friday, and breakfast and lunch will be served on Saturday. We will have plenty of fellowship, prayer, and worship time. There will be an option to swim in the pool before and after the retreat sessions on both days. All ladies 8th grade and up are welcome. This is not currently an overnight retreat.

Our hope and prayer is that this retreat would be a special time for you to find refreshment and renewed hope in the Lord and in fellowship with other women. During an especially challenging year, the Lord can bring beauty from all of our brokenness as we come together in Him!

Please register by Wednesday, September 2nd.

Registration is $20 per person. If you can't afford the registration cost, please let us know and we can waive your fee.

The details of the retreat are as follows:

Location: 216 Trinity Point Rd, Swoope, VA 24479
