Women’s Ministry

We’re excited for the BelPres 2019 Women’s Weekend Retreat and hope you will join us!

When:  February 8-10, 2019 (arrival: 5pm Friday; departure: noon on Sunday)

What: A women’s gathering for refreshment, restoration and connection

Who: Open to women 18 years and older.  Babes in arms are also invited to attend with their moms.  No childcare is provided.  To inquire about bringing your infant, please contact Lori Jensen, ljensen@belpres.org.

Where: Cedar Springs Christian Retreat Center in Sumas, WA (cedarspringscrc.org)

Speaker:   Our speaker Jessica Jager, Founder of Restore Gatherings  (restoregathering.com), lives in Spokane, WA with her husband of nearly 15 years, Brian and her two children Elliot and Grace.  She is part of the body of SOMA Spokane and considers it to be her family of choosing.  When not writing or speaking  you will find her in her home cooking and enjoying family and friends through shared meals, laughter and worship.  She considers this life to be a blessed one, full of things that have opportunity to pull us closer to God.

At our retreat she will share her inspiring story of restoration and an invitation into your own story of restoration.  She writes, “God is aware of your story and names that have come from it…He is not only aware of them but he is currently and actively redeeming them and recreating them into something  that is worthy of display in the palm of his very hand.”

Full, non-refundable payment is required at the time of registration.  Spaces are limited.  Take advantage of early-bird registration before December 15th.
