Join us for the St Andrew’s Women’s Retreat March 15-16, 2019.

Every few years, the women of St Andrew’s gather for a day-and-a-half of connecting, learning and relaxation. This year, as in recent years past, we are gathering at the Alton L. Collins Retreat Center in Eagle Creek, about a 75-minute drive from St Andrew’s. The accommodations are by double room with private bath and the meals are delicious and catered to your food preferences! Our gathering together this year will have more unscheduled time for trying new things like hiking, knitting or Holy Yoga. Pastor Sarah will lead us in listening to and telling our stories, from our faith and female perspectives. We hope you connect with several women at this intergenerational event. Invite a friend, a sister, a daughter; all women are welcome!

·     Collins Retreat Center is at 32867 SE Highway 211 in Eagle Creek (you will get a confirmation and map the week of the retreat).
