2023 Women's Retreat
Join us for a weekend exploring the sacred journeys we take nearby, faraway, and within! Share memories of places of special significance to you, enjoy some armchair travel to places of spiritual pilgrimage, experience a mini pilgrimage together at Hallowood, explore Biblical examples of journey, and discuss how our return back home from a journey can be a time to reflect on the transformations we’ve encountered within ourselves as a pilgrim on the road. Contact Nancy Hall-Berens to see if space is still available!
We gathered for a moment of quiet Sabbath in January 2023 to hear insights and reflections from Christian Educator Martha Bess DeWitt about this year’s Bible study “Celebrating Sabbath.”
Mary, Elizabeth, Sarah, Rachel, Hannah, Ruth, Lydia. Who are these women and what do they have in common? They are all important women in the Bible and they also happen to represent the names of each of our seven Women’s Circles. Over 100 women are involved with a circle here at Westminster. We meet monthly for Bible study, fellowship, and mission support. Each year, the Bible study program offers us insight into the meaning of scripture as well as opportunities for discussion of what it means in our daily lives. In addition, each circle takes time to share joys and concerns, casual fellowship conversation, and to reach out to those in need through cards, prayers and offerings.
Our 2022-2023 Bible study is called “Celebrating Sabbath: Accepting God's Gift of Rest and Delight." Click below to learn more about our circles!
The Book Groups typically meet on the fourth Monday of the month . Come to either the morning group at 11:00 AM or the evening group at 7:30 PM. Book groups will continue to meet through Zoom! Contact Nancy Hall Berens for details.
