You Are Invited!

Women, this event is designed especially for you. Join us for a weekend of Jesus, girl-time, and Sky Lodge fun! We all come from different places—school, work, single, married, young kids, old kids, not to mention so many other joys and challenges of life. Join us as we learn, play, laugh, share, pray, and grow together as women of God.

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.  Hebrews 4:12  ESV

Speaker
Note - Nursing Mothers:
