Fall 2012 All Conference Women's Retreat
"Make Yourselves at Home"
All Conference Women's Retreat
September 14-16, 2012
Portage Lake Covenant Bible Camp, Onekama, MI
"I've loved you the way my Father has loved me. Make yourselves at home in my love."
John 15:9, The Message
Jesus has made our hearts His home. But have we made His heart our home? Do we rest in the love of God, or do we root ourselves in lesser things?
Join us as we explore how to practice dwelling deeply in the extravagant love of God. Pastor and author Sharon Garlough Brown will lead us on a sacred journey of discovering how to remain and delight in God's presence through prayer and other spiritual disciplines.
