Weekday Women’s Bible Study

We will begin on Sept 26th, and will meet in the Fellowship Hall at OP from 10:30-12. Please register at the link below, and let us know if you need childcare. We will provide for kids 5 and under. Please contact Stephanie Ham with questions.

2018 Women’s Retreat

Friday, October 12 – Sunday, October 14

Join us on October 12-14 in Montreat, NC for our annual women’s retreat. Invite your friends, neighbors, and co-workers to come as well. If you haven’t been on a Hope Women’s Retreat, this is the year. On our retreats, we strive for heart-provoking teaching, intentional time with Jesus, and free time to build community with other women. Our speaker this year will be Jess Connolly, author of Wild and Free, and Dance, Stand, Run. She loves the scriptures, and is going to speak to us around the topic of living out the gospel of grace, and also the holiness we are called to, and set free for.If you have questions, please contact Alex Whitaker.

We offer two housing options: The Assembly Inn is in a nicer, hotel setting and will be more expensive. The second option is the lodges (standard housing). This is a more economical choice and will be like staying in a dorm – with your own bathroom.

The cost of the retreat is $135 (standard housing) and $200 (Assembly Inn). You can get an early registration discount of $25 if you sign up by September 15th!
