Have you registered for KDW Women’s Retreat? Our annual fall retreats will be Oct. 5-7 (midweek) and Oct. 7-9 (weekend) at Tawakoni. We are planning a full schedule where we will be joining in fellowship, learning, and worshiping.
The speaker, Rev. Christian Watkins, is the Executive Director/Campus Pastor at Ecumenical Campus Ministry (ECM) at Kansas State University (KSU) in Manhattan. She also teaches in the School of Education and Human Sciences at the University of Kansas (KU).
Her ministry passions include fostering alternative faith communities, spiritual mentorship, creative liturgies, interbelief solidarity and supplying abundant enthusiasm. A member of the Anti-Racism/Pro-Reconciliation Team, she is committed to anti-racist and inclusive LGBTQ+ institutional practices.
Using our theme scripture, 1 Peter 3:8-12, we will learn together how we can BEE church and make a difference by being a blessing to others in our lives and world. Workshop opportunities include presentations on a variety of topics such as hospice care, ministering with inclusive communities, church communication, BEE gardens, lay person education, eating healthy, and different service organizations we can help as partners. Hands on crafts and service projects will also be offered.
Register by Thursday, Sept. 15, online for the Midweek Fall Retreat or Weekend Fall Retreat, through your ENGAGE Account, or by phone through any regional office. PDF registration forms available for download through the KDW ministry page.
Please join with the women of the region as we embrace our theme, “Let’s BEE Church and Make a Difference!” Remember to register soon!
