Nearly 400 women attended the annual WFBC Ladies’Retreat on March 23-24, 2012. Addressing the theme, “Clinging to the Vine,” Faith Taylor challenged ladies to truly live as though they believe John 15:5, “I am the Vine, ye are the branches…without Me, ye can do nothing.” In addition to three main sessions, ladies were able to choose 4 of 10 workshops offered on various subjects which pertain to women’s roles in the home and church. For fun and fellowship, other activities included orchestra, ladies’ chorus, stamping or jewelry workshops. The bookstore and gift shop was a great place to browse and find resources not usually available. Ladies donated crafts to sell as a way to provide a scholarship fund for future retreats, and generous offerings were given for the Heart to Heart Fund and Mrs. Mary Dow. Many women made spiritual decisions, and at least one received Christ as her Savior. Information will be updated on the WFBC website as well as a unique website just for the ladies’ retreat, www.wfbcladies.org. Plans are already “in the works” for next year’s retreat to be held at Green Lake Conference Center on March 22-23, 2013.
