GSLC Women’s Retreat Update

Feb. 28 - Mar. 1, 2020

St. Francis Retreat Center

San Juan Bautista, CA

We are pleased to announce that we will be welcoming a presenter for next year’s retreat. She is Stephenie Hovland from Portage, WI. A teacher, writer of devotions, children’s books, and educational materials, she is also an inspirational speaker who just happens to have a close connection to our congregation. Her desire is to “help others tend the fire of the faith-filled life that God has given them.” Watch for future updates here and on the church website for more information about her specific presentation and registration details. We are very excited that Stephenie could fit our GSLC Women’s Retreat into her busy schedule! Beth Kirkpatrick, Angie Martino, Tiffany Santoro, Lori Smith, Pam Youngdale – Retreat Planning Team
