Women's Conference 2017

  • Doubling Gap Retreat Center 1643-1663 PA-233 Newville, PA, 17241 United States (map)

Sometimes, life doesn’t turn out like we hope. Our plans fall through, the people around us don’t seem to understand, and worst of all, God seems to be distant as our hopes don’t come to fruition.

So, what do we do when the only choice seems to be to accept defeat?

At this year’s Women’s Conference we will read the biblical story of Ruth, in which two women must find new hope for life after losing nearly everything they loved. Join us as we read about the responses they chose, how God worked out their stories, and how to find the hope we need for our own lives.

We're sorry, registration is closed. If you'd still like to come, you can sign up on our wait list and we'll contact you if we have cancellations or openings.

When you register, you should receive an email containing important information about the Women's Conference. If you do not receive this email, please email as soon as possible so we can get it to you!
