Fall Gathering

November 9-11, 2018
Fall Gathering
Lake Yale Baptist Retreat Center

It Is All About Love
“God Is Love”
I John 4:16

“So, we know and rely on the love God has for us.
‘God Is Love’ whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.”

We invite all women to come and share a time of celebration and fellowship together. What about being in an uplifting environment surrounded by 250 plus Sisters of Faith, along with a Bible study, great music, fun workshops and more. Does this sound like the type of celebration you would like to attend? Well, this is your personal invitation to attend the 2018 Fall Gathering at Lake Yale Baptist Retreat Center on Friday, November 9th-11th.

Our celebration will revolve around the love of God for “God Is Love.” If you have never been to the Fall Gathering or you are a returning attendee, we would like to extend a special invitation for you to join us for a weekend full of fun and excitement. We are honored to have Pastor Vicki Hamilton from St. John’s Lutheran Church in Jacksonville leading and assisting us throughout the weekend. She will also be blessing us with her Sermon on Sunday morning. Saturday evening activities will allow us to continue celebrating with games and surprises based on “Decades of Love.” Karaoke anyone?

There will be youth activities for our young women. We invite all women to come and share this time together. More information is to come in Tapestry articles. 

Hope to see you at Lake Yale!
