In the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, we held our first annual Women’s Retreat, where we discussed mental health (something everyone needed help with that year). In 2021, more women attended as COVID restrictions loosened, and we learned about hearing From God.
This year, after discussing “Sharing Your God Story” on October 29 at Broadmoor Baptist Church, we’ve received the best and most engaged feedback from any of our three retreats.
When asked in a post-event survey to name her favorite part of the retreat, Ashlee Brown-Walker said, “Everything! This truly blessed me so much. I don’t attend this church and felt so welcomed and loved on. I hope you all do more women events like this. I desire more Christian friends.”
In addition to hearing from speakers including Shay Greenwood, Jessica Warren, and Felecia Marshall, we engaged in worship led by singer/songwriter Allie Murphy, ate a delicious lunch, and enjoyed yummy cupcakes and small group discussions in the afternoon.
We could not have made this year’s Women’s Retreat our best so far without our sponsors! Our 2022 sponsors were:
◼ Impact Sponsor: Business Communications, Inc. (BCI)
◼ Community Sponsor: Wendy Maxwell, Counselor
◼ Community Sponsor: Pam Anderson, Cruise Planners
◼ Faithful Friends: Musee Bath
Finally, at this year’s Women’s Retreat, Katie announced the first ever MCL Writing Retreat, which will take place Saturday, April 1, at Roosevelt State Park in Morton, Mississippi. If you want more details, please email email@example.com.
