We invite you to join us for the new season of the Women’s Retreat Group. We gather monthly, 9:00 to 11:00 am at the Christie House Library or by Zoom, unless otherwise noted, starting Saturday, September 10. We welcome all women of Epiphany to join us in a series of fellowship and insight gatherings over a light breakfast, coffee, and tea. Our sessions lead to two retreats; the first a one-day in-town retreat in mid-November: and the second a three-day retreat at Hood Canal in mid-April.
In addition to discussion and discernment around bible readings, our liturgical calendar, and fellowship, we also highlight and celebrate the many helping hands that enable our church to run smoothly and learn how we may pitch in. Our goal is to get to know each other and our parish better.
After chats, coffee, and nibbles, we pray the Saturday morning Hour by Hour, have a quick show and tell on the Liturgical Calendar, then move through the meditations based on scripture readings from the lectionary from the Psalms, Old Testament, and New Testament in the Forward Day by Day.
Here’s our schedule of meeting at the Christie House Library or via Zoom:
November 5: Discernment Retreat (9:00 am to 1:00 pm)
April 14 – 16: Retreat, St. Andrew’s House
RSVP: Amanda Eap at firstname.lastname@example.org or (206) 324-2573.
