Growing (Up) Together in Christ :: IN-MI Mennonite Women and Girls Fall Retreat :: 10/9-10/11

Each year women from Indiana-Michigan Mennonite Conferences and their friends gather at Amigo Centre to be refreshed and challenged. In addition friendships are rekindled and new friendships are formed…in this special place. 

God has given us the good gift of each other to help us grow up in faith. Reading the Bible is especially exciting and enlightening when we do it with people from other generations, congregations, and cultures. During the weekend, we will study and play with three to four biblical texts about women and girls, paying close attention to the unique contributions we each have to make to our joint reading of these texts and discovering together the wisdom that comes from both age and youth.

GUEST SPEAKER: A voracious reader, Rachel Miller Jacobs has loved the Bible ever since she discovered that it was a book. A former high school English teacher, former stay-at-homeparent, and former pastor, she currently teaches at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. She is especially interested in helping groups read the Bible together in lively and life-changing ways. She and her husband are the parents of three young adult sons; the youngest one was convinced, when he was six, that Jesus was really a girl.

Inviting girls in third grade and up to come enjoy an intergenerational time of worship and fellowship. Bring a daughter, niece, mentee, granddaughter, or another special girl to share in a fun weekend! Girls will be invited to participate in alternate activities during the latter half of most worship times, but will join the women for all of the Sunday morning service. We pray this can be a time of learning to walk with each other and growing together in Christ through all of our ages and stages of life.
