For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you–that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.
– Romans 1:11-12
Leader: Nicole Bihl
In October of 2016 we had a conference at the church. Many of our women came out and it was put on a few hearts that we need to continue meeting together to learn how to grow in our own personal identity and know God’s love for us, but also to get to know the women around us every Sunday. The more we ask God to reveal his heart for each other, the more we are able to love like He does and treat people like he sees them. This has been the heart of our women’s ministry.
We began meeting every 4-6 weeks to spend time together enjoying the presence of God, laughing, worshipping and encouraging one another. Each time we meet it is a little bit different as we let Holy Spirit lead us.
If you want to join our e-mail list and find out about upcoming gatherings, please let us know.
Also, we are very active as a group on Facebook. Check us out “Bethel Women.” There is lots of encouragement throughout the week, updates on what’s happening at Bethel and in each others lives, as well as people often post things they need prayer for as well as victories. Our community has grown greatly by using this tool to connect during the week.
Out of these amazing times of gathering we felt a tribe rise up. We decided to go away for a weekend together and the first annual Bethel Women’s retreat started in April 2017. It was powerful. We were touched, filled, renewed! This year’s retreat is at Camp Friedenswald in Cassopolis, MI again, beginning with dinner at 6pm EST on Friday April 6th and ending at 12pm EST on Sunday April 8th. The cost is $100 and covers lodging and 5 meals.
We will have an e-mail coming out after March 17th for things like rooming, food, carpooling, packing list, etc.
