A Women’s Retreat
February 17-19, 2023
Eagle Eyrie, Lynchburg, VA
All adult women are invited to join us for a weekend in the mountains at Eagle Eyrie Conference Center. Our time will be spent in conversation, study, fellowship, and more as we talk about the significance of Pilgrimage – our own and each other’s, as God journeys with us and participates in our lives. Rev. Courtney Mills Jones Willis will lead the retreat and through scripture invite us into conversation, asking “Where you have been, where are you now, and where are you heading?”
Expect an interactive weekend of learning and growth together, along with fun! We will begin between 7 and 8 p.m. at Eagle Eyrie on Friday, February 17. You can expect to be home by early afternoon, Sunday, February 19.
Double occupancy, $175 per person covers program leadership, supplies, 4 meals (Saturday breakfast – Sunday breakfast) and housing. If you would like a single occupancy room, the cost is $209 per person.
The registration and payment deadline is February 2, 2023. More information can be found below (scroll down).
