UCC and DOC Women’s Spiritual Growth Retreat, 2012

October 5-7, 2012
Loch Leven Christian Retreat Center

     “What a great idea!”  “It’s long overdue.”  “I can’t wait!”  “How exciting!”
     These are just some of the reactions of women who heard about the upcoming UCC and DOC Women’s Spiritual Growth Retreat, October 5-7, 2012. The retreat will be the first UCC Southern California Nevada Conference and DOC Pacific Southwest Region-wide collaboration of a women’s event.

     Elaine Blanchard, a self-described “storyteller, counselor, teacher, preacher, performer and writer,” will be the keynote speaker as we learn and grow by sharing our “sister stories.”   Elaine is currently working as a chaplain for Hospice Advantage in Memphis and is a Regional Partner for Women’s Ministries in the West Central Region of the United Church of Christ.  Elaine’s first book, Help Me Remember, was published in 2005 and she has a one-woman show, “For Goodness Sake.”

     The retreat, “Behold, A New Thing,” will present opportunities for building new relationships between DOC and UCC women to strengthen women’s ministry in our area.  It will also offer occasions for self-reflection, community, music, creativity and, especially, spiritual growth.

     Loch Leven Christian Retreat Center, in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains will be the location of the Retreat.  The registration fee of $135 -$145 includes meals from Friday to Sunday and materials.   Partial scholarships are available.   Registration forms and scholarship applications will be available in June.  Space is limited to the first 130 women.  For more information contact Andi Sanders (DOC) at (760) 724-5477 or Rachel Chapman (UCC) at (619) 216-3222.
