Refresh Ladies Retreat

September 13-15, 2024

Planted, Rooted, and Grounded - Col 2:6-7

Women of all ages can look forward to being refreshed and renewed for a weekend each September at the Ladies Retreat. It is promised to be a time of growth in their personal intimacy with Christ.

There are many fun and meaningful activities planned. Attendees are encouraged to bring a lawn chair for a personal solo time with the Lord! See the planned schedule below.

There are several pricing options based on whether you come for the entire weekend or just part of it. We are happy to have you join us for whatever you can manage!

The price for those over the age of 24 is based on how long you can stay:

  • Full weekend (Friday-Sunday) – $100
  • Friday-Saturday – $75
  • Saturday-Sunday – $75
  • Saturday only – $40

The price is discounted for those under the age of 25.

There is also an optional craft that will cost $10 to participate for the supplies. This can be added during the registration process.

How to Register

​You can register by doing one the following:

If you are registering by telephone or email, please include your full name, date of birth, address and email address and which option you are registering for (full weekend or one of the partial weekend options).

​Please also let us know the name of your home church and if you have any housing requests, such as a person to stay with. Not all housing requests will be able to be honored, but we will do our best to accommodate them.

2024 Speaker – Susie Sullivan

We are delighted to have Susie Sullivan to share with us again for this year’s ladies retreat.

Susie was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, but grew up in Dover, Pennsylvania. She came to know the Lord as her Savior at a young age after hearing the Gospel often from her mom and dad. She put her trust in Christ out of fear of going to hell, but came to find the day-to-day presence of the Lord in her life to be the most precious result of her salvation. During her teen years and into the next several decades, Susie served on the camp staff and later as a Bible teacher for Girls Camp at Greenwood Hills. These experiences greatly shaped her life and friendships.

After teaching elementary school for nine years in the Pennsylvania public school system and training teachers at Emmaus Bible College for thirteen years, Susie has found her favorite occupation—tending to her home and working alongside her husband. Rob and Susie live in Yonkers, New York, and fellowship at Bethany Chapel, where Rob is an elder. Susie loves to cook, pull weeds, and hopes to someday write a children’s book about the adventures of her teddy bear, Cuddly Bear. 


Solo Time
One of the best parts of the Refresh Ladies Retreat is the “solo time” allowing each of us to spend time with the Lord to hear from Him. We allow for this time after each of the messages. We encourage you to bring a lawn chair or blanket for you to use during your solo time.
