Women's Ministry

Friday, April 16 and Saturday, April 17 

Sign-ups will be open through April 11, however for planning purposes, please let us know as soon as possible if you plan to attend. 

We hope that you will join us for Oakwood Women's Spring Retreat that will be both in-person and virtual. This year we will focus on what it means to be godly women, sharing life side by side and connecting generations. Part of our time will include listening to teaching sessions by Susan Hunt, the author of many resources created for PCA women over the last 50 years. Susan's recordings will cast a vision for us to be life-givers as we seek to cultivate community life among God's people.

Click HERE to sign up for a wonderful time of food, fellowship, teaching, and fun. The retreat will be held at Oakwood beginning Friday evening, April 16 through Saturday afternoon, April 17. Childcare is not provided, but nursing babies (and their strollers) are welcome to join us.

You can attend in-person or virtually through zoom. For those who sign up for the zoom option, the Women's Ministry Team will deliver a "Retreat Care-Package" containing all you'll need for your at-home retreat.

We would love for you to share this information with your family and friends. Look forward to seeing you there!
