Kansas Disciples Women Retreat

The KDW 2015 Retreat: An Oasis of Peace
Speaker: Rev. Betty Brewer-Calvert

October 7-9 or 9-11
Disciples Center at Tawakoni

Speaker Betty Brewer-Calvert, an ordained clergywoman, wife of a Disciples pastor, and mother of two adult children, is the Georgia region Director of Women’s Ministries. Her presentations will be designed to bring women into that quiet center of retreat experience.

Since “P.E.A.C.E.” may be understood to stand for “Pleasurable Experience Anchoring Centered Energy,” your KDW Cabinet has planned a wide-range of activities, interest groups, and personal experiences, as well as worship, singing, displays, fellowship and great food. 

Registrations are due by Friday, Sept. 11; register and pay online below or print the form and mail it with your check. Registration fee increases on Sept. 12 and bunk assignments are not guaranteed. Further packing information is on the registration form and in the letter sent two weeks prior to the retreat to all who are registered.

Registration begins at 4:00 P.M. on the first day, with the evening session beginning at 6:45 P.M. The retreat ends prior to noon on day three.

Day 2 optional activities:
     » Painting class: include the extra $25.00 materials fee with your registration 
     » Book Study Discussion: bring your copy of UNBROKEN
     » Prayer Shawls group: bring a size K-M crochet hook and yarn, approx. 36 oz./
         No. 5 Bulky/6 skeins, or “Rainbow Classics” large 11 oz./ 2 skeins for
         crocheting, or bring a set of 8-11 knitting needles and yarn.
     » Yoga class: bring a mat or thick towel.
     » 10 Minute Massage: bring $10.00 cash, plus tip.

Details are still developing for the possibility of creating paving stones for the labyrinth; this will be held in the afternoon prior to registration. Bring or wear work clothes for this project; you may also want to bring small, appropriate objects to embed in your stone.
