You can join the waitlist to attend the full retreat, in the event that someone who is already registered cannot attend.
To sign up for one of these options, click the “register” button above.
Join us for a spring women’s retreat to take a breather from your normal routine. Foster a deeper relationship with God and with fellow women from CFC as we enjoy teaching from God’s Word, rest from our to-do lists, and have fun together! Get ready to enjoy delicious meals, encouraging fellowship, and a dynamic speaker with a group while also setting aside personal reflection time for you to pray, read, or seek God’s voice in a relaxed setting.
Where is my joy and what can I do to get some?! STAT! Have you ever asked yourself this question? The world tells us to just “Choose Joy!” but is it really that simple? If you’re like me you’re looking to find true joy that surpasses earthy happiness and quick contentment fixes. The way to this is to find our joy in the Lord — in His presence and in our salvation. This joy is so much deeper and so much more life-giving than anything the world can offer us. It’s more than just a smile on our face; it’s about the state of our hearts. Joy often gets squashed when it’s entangled in so many other emotions but together we are going to dig into how we can encounter the Lord and have joy in every season and circumstance.
Dana is a Lancaster transplant but has called the area home for almost four years. She is married to Josh and together they have 3 kids. Dana’s full time job is caring for her family and making sure everyone gets to school and soccer practice on time. But along with that, she has a passion for women’s ministry that runs deep. She loves to foster community and create spaces for women to grow in their knowledge and love for the Lord. In her “spare time” you can find Dana thrifting treasures, throwing parties, or rearranging her home decor for the 100th time. If you are asking what Dana doesn’t like — it’s cooking dinner. She would like to know when the people will stop wanting to eat?!
