Building our Community: Retreats for Women
Jesus wept. The shortest verse in the Bible, yet powerful. Jesus wept when he sat beside Lazarus' grave. However, he did not only weep. Jesus prayed, he pushed the stone away, and called out for his friend to walk out of the tomb.
Women connected with Dismas or Community Chaplaincy in Hamilton, Brampton and Toronto are listening to Jesus' personal invitations through attending upcoming women's retreats.
Please Pray! We are having a retreat, with 26 women this Saturday, February 26. We will be asking Jesus: "Who do YOU say that I am?".
You are invited to participate on teams to coordinate logistics (driving, shopping, refreshments), arts (crafts, painting, drama), spiritual nurture (prayer, worship, musical instruments) and more.
The next retreat will be held on April 9 and our yearly weekend retreat will be held on July 8-10.
The weekend retreat, which takes place over a weekend in July, costs about $100 per person per day. We need your continued support to make this weekend a reality. Would you consider sponsoring one woman?

Please invite God's spirit to show you if and how you might join this ministry.
