A FREE Cyber Retreat for Sisters in Ministry
February 7 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
This year, even though we can’t meet in person AGAIN, we can meet on Zoom and do the special sharing that we have done each year at the Women in Ministry Retreat. Again, we’ll miss the special beauty and delicious meals at Rainbow Lodge. We’ll miss the late-night catching up with one or two sisters, hiking in the woods, playing board games, and sharing worship times. But, we don’t have to miss all of it!
Here’s an opportunity to check in with one another on zoom. To discover our DNA as sisters in ministry. To share the blessings and frustrations, the heartbreak and joy of being in ministry as a woman appointed or assigned in the PNW Conference of United Methodist Church (including lay ministers and retirees).
Like Hayley Mills in The Parent Trap (the first one), we can discover ourselves again in the stories of others. So, “Let’s get together (again) – ya, ya, ya!” just for that!
9:00 AM – anyone who has a “side meeting” they want to schedule and facilitate, come early to work out time(s)
9:30-11:30 AM – THE BIG ZOOM with everyone attending! Beginning with worship and going directly into the “how is it with your soul/what’s happening in your life” check-ins.
11:30 AM-1:30 PM – Break for… rest, lunch, checking email, nap… OR breakout groups who want to talk about particular topics: upcoming General conference issues, political climate, etc.
1:30 PM – back to the BIG ZOOM for devotion, finish the check-ins, and a prayer at the end.
3:30 PM – “Goodbye, it was good to get together (ya, ya, ya)” to the large group – other groups may want to stay on for more side discussions.
SIDE GROUP PLANNERS/FACILITATOR TYPES:
Anyone wanting to offer one of those side groups/discussion gatherings in the break or after the ending, please let Rev. Karla Fredericksen know of the topics ASAP – email@example.com
