April 20-22, 2018 Lake Superior State University Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan
The Women Today Retreat will be held on the beautiful campus of Lake Superior State University located in Sault Sainte Marie, MI. This is our 45th Annual Retreat and we look forward to gathering with all of our valued friends. God has blessed this ministry and we welcome each of those that are able to attend.
2018 Theme: Are you ready (for Christ's return)? Luke 26:36 (NIV)
To Focus on God’s Purpose in Your Life, Come Join us for a Week end of Inspiration, Fellowship and Blessing!
This year we are welcoming back Lynnelle Pierce. You can read a little more about her ministry at http://lynnellepierce.com/. Lynnelle has been singing since she was seven. On her eighth birthday, she became a part of the Children’s Bible Hour Radio Ministry. Then became involved with Youth for Christ and there she met her husband, Tom. They live in Holland, Michigan and have two sons, Chad and Jason. Both are married, have children and are serving the Lord in their own ministries. Tom and Lynnelle have traveled the world with Lynnelle’s singing and now have changed their avenue of delivery to Bible Study teaching and writing. Lynnelle teaches every week and speaks at many conferences and seminars. Lynnelle is firm, clear, and consistent when it comes to her teaching of God’s Word—knowing that nothing keeps us connected with Him more, and is vitally important if your desire is to know how to really “live”.
We are also welcoming back, Amy Shreve from Marquette, MI as our musician this year. She was with us in 2015 and you won't want to miss her in 2018. Amy is a singer, songwriter and harpist. She will be joined by her husband, Gary Wixtrom playing guitars and a mandolin. Gary is also preparing for a mini-session on Caregiving. Amy graduated with a music degree from Wheaton College and landed in Nashville to pursue a music career. Amy has recorded sixteen records for six companies and has been nominated for a Dove award. Through the music, Amy's message of God's perfect peace in the midst of difficulty will comfort you, encourage you, and will challenge you to fall in love with a God who cares deeply for you. See Amy's picture below and visit her at http://www.amyshrive.com.
