Bring Dwell Retreat to Your Ladies Group!
Do you wish you and your friends could learn how to be rooted in God's Word in the day to day mundane moments? How to study and pray the Word effectively not only for yourself, but for your family?
This is what Dwell Retreat teaches! We seek to fulfill Colossians 3:16 by teaching women how to treasure, study, hear, and pray the Word of God so they can effectively seek Him daily in the Word and in prayer.
What is Dwell Retreat?
A fundamental part of Christian life that all Christians are taught is that they must read their Bible and pray every day. However, all too often they are not given the tools required to intentionally grow beyond the fundamental levels of Christianity. This retreat teaches women that there are true depths in studying and praying the Word of God. The inspiration behind Dwell Retreat is Colossians 3:16 which says, “Let the word of Christ dwell richly among you, in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another through psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.” Dwell Retreat is a two day event that seeks to fulfill Colossians 3:16 through learning how to make Christ and His Word the greatest treasure through life’s distractions. At this retreat you will learn practical ways to treasure, study, hear, and pray God's Word through interactive teaching.
What Dwell Retreat Can Offer You!
Dwell Retreat is a two day event with four sessions. Each session focuses on a different topic of the Word of God. Each session is accompanied by a workbook that contains notes for each session and two sessions have an interactive piece in which women will practice studying and praying the Word of God. Scripture cards will be given out as well along with Biblical resources giveaways. At request worship sessions can also be provided as well before each teaching session.
