We’ll hear about grace and faith, enjoy music and deepen our connection with our fellow sisters in Christ. It will be a time to be poured into, and recharged by the Word of God, and leave refreshed and encouraged! The cost for our 2-day retreat is $35. Registration is available online at epres.org/women, and in person at church each Sunday in February. The deadline to register is Monday February 24. Please join us in covering this event in prayer, we cannot wait to see you there!
