Join us October 13 -15, 2017 at Briarwood Retreat Center for Women of Courage Then and Now. Gather with your sisters from thoughout the Northern Texas-Northern Louisiana Synod for a look at the courage of persons working in refuge relief services and in missions around the world. We will have topical Bible studies and a video about Katharina Von Bora Luther, fellowship with fellow WELCA ladies, crafts, and time for meditation. Briarwood will provide us excellent meals in the dining hall and comfortable lodging. Bring an item for the silent auction and money to bid on other items to raise funds for our scholarships. If you are in need of help to attend the Fall Retreat, apply for a scholarship. Bring a light color t-shirt and $2.00 if you would like to make a shirt with Luther’s picture on it.
ROCK, RUN AND ROLL AT FALL RETREAT
Participate in walking, running, or rolling a 1-mile gravel roadway through Briarwood Retreat Center. The funds raised through this activity will benefit the NT-NL SWO Scholarship Fund. This scholarship fund provides a portion of registration fees for events sponsored by the NT-NL Synod SWO and/or W-ELCA Churchwide. We have offered scholarships for NT-NL SWO participants who are continuing their education in the ministry and/or initiatives sponsored by the ELCA.
Bring this sheet and monies collected with you to the NT-NL SWO Retreat at Briarwood Retreat Center October 13-15, 2017 and plan to Walk, Run, and Roll!
