Women’s Ministry (all day, in-town) Spring Retreat

Are we Spiritual Gluttons? Hear some challenging, yet important thoughts from Elizabeth Goodwin as she observes and explores spirituality in the Western Church today. Join us as she discusses how we might develop a “fitter faith”. Also, you may choose from a variety of activities to exercise your body, mind, and creative side! The whole day offers women a variety of opportunities for fun and fellowship with the hopes of building deeper relationships.

“Fat Christianity and Our Need for Self-Detox”– Elizabeth “Lizzie” Goodwin will present two challenging messages that you will not want to miss! She and her husband, Sam, have 3 daughters, and are presently home from the mission field. They serve the Lord as church planters in an area outside of Munich, Germany. Lizzie speaks fluent German which has opened the door for her to use her many diversified gifts, skills, and talents. She leads their church’s music and Bible studies for women and also hosts visitors on a regular basis. We at SAPC love the Goodwins and are always thrilled when they are here with us as this is their home church.
