CCCA Women’s Spring Retreat – June 1-3, 2018
Dear Women, we invite you to The Conference Center at Bethany Beach for renewal, reconnection, reflection, and relaxation!
Our Theme is “Disciples Women in Conversation”
Last fall the internet movement and phenomenon known as #MeToo became a universal rallying cry for survivors of sexual assault and harassment and advocates of women. Since then we have borne witness to people’s stories and experiences, which has led us to deeper questions about women’s experiences in the workforce, in leadership positions, and throughout society. The focus for the Women’s Retreat this year emerges from these significant cultural moments and our hope to locate the role and engagement of our church in these conversations. Where is the CC(DOC) doing well with women in leadership? Where do we need people in their times of need? We hope that you will join us in Bethany Beach to explore these important questions, enjoy fellowship, and much more!
