Overview

 

While women have been given countless opportunities to connect virtually with other women from all over the world, it never quite takes the place of connecting in person-hugging the necks of sisters in Christ and sitting down to conversation over coffee.

In 2018, Maranatha Camp & Retreat Center presents FLOURISH, an event for women to meet face-to-face and connect with God, community, and other women. This event is more than just a meet-and-greet—it’s an immersion in the kind of love and encouragement that comes from women connecting in real life.

“To retreat” means to leave our normally occupied positions and go to a place of safety, quiet, and seclusion. By going to a retreat, we physically remove ourselves from life’s distractions, the call of chores, and the demands of people in order to make space for God. If you think you’re less spiritual because you struggle to hear from God in the cacophony of your daily life, be encouraged. Even Jesus recognized the value and need to get away.

My heart is restless until it finds rest in You….
