Women’s Retreat Invitation
March 1-3, 2019

Peace

Locating God in our Daily Lives

 

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. John 14: 27

 

Jesus promises to give us peace.  We also know that at times it is difficult to find peace or maintain it.  The news of the day unsettles us, the call from the doctor alarms us, the day to day challenges of navigating life can make us feel frayed and at odds with this promise.

 

During our retreat, we will: explore what Jesus intends for us through this promise; talk about some of the barriers we encounter in maintaining peace; and finally, practice ways to increase our peace on a daily basis.  There will be time for you to rest, visit local shops and embrace peace!

 

Harmony Grove UMC Women in Lilburn, GA invited Pastor Lisa to lead this retreat at Lake Junaluska. We will be in the newly renovated Lambuth Inn.  Lisa served as Associate Pastor at Harmony Grove for five years. The Harmony Grove women  extend the invitation to our Cokes Chapel women to join in this special time apart.

 

I know Cokes Chapel women will enjoy the beautiful mountain setting and the wonderful women of Harmony Grove.  I know they will delight in getting to know you also! 

I look forward to discoveries in God’s Word, good fellowship  and renewal in our walk in Christ.   God has good in store for us!

Peace,

Lisa
