Women's Harbor 5th Annual Retreat will be held at CONNRI Lodge and Conference Center in Ashford, CT (about a 90 minute drive from Harbor). 

The theme of our retreat this year is Better Together.  Like the early church, we want to be a community that is devoted to biblical teaching, to fellowship, to sharing meals, and to prayer (Acts 2:42). By loving and serving one another, we will become a family that brings glory to God and invites others to join us. 

Our guest speaker is Lucinda Secrest McDowell. Lucinda discovered a life mission of using her gifts to communicate God’s faithfulness, extend His grace, and encourage others to trust Him fully. She is the author of 13 books and a contributing author to another 30+ books. Lucinda’s favorites include tea parties, good books, laughing friends, ancient prayers, country music, cozy quilts, musical theatre, and especially her family scattered around the world doing amazing things. A graduate of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, she speaks to women and writers across New England and the US. We’re excited to hear what Lucinda has to teach us about being better together in our relationships with God and others.

We are pleased to announce that once again worship will be led by Ally Moran.  We know this will be an exceptional time of drawing close to God through music and prayer.

Our retreat format will have time for being alone in God’s presence, making a joyful noise in worship, learning by listening and discussing, sharing wonderful meals, and having fun together with girlfriends!

We are looking forward to spending the weekend with you, learning and growing in our faith together, and getting you know you better. May we all come away refreshed physically, emotionally and spiritually, and even better together!

Check in between 6:00-7:00 pm and our first gathering will be at 7:30 pm on Friday (dinner is on your own that evening). We wrap up around 2:00 pm on Sunday. 

$225 for all retreat costs including double occupancy accommodation
