2020 WR Breakout Conferences

“Sharing the Gospel Today”  Wayne Briant, SW Florida Regional Catalyst, Florida Baptist
     How to share the gospel in everyday experiences.  Developing a compassion and love for the lost that shows through in an intentional lifestyle.

“Influencing the Next Generation”  Barbara Sullivan, Women's Ministry Leader, First Ft Ogden
     Are you concerned about those that will “come after you”?  Have you ever wondered “How can I invest in the generations to follow so they will have an opportunity to know Christ and serve Him”? Here are some ways God can use you to pour into the generations to come.

“Our Neighbors and Strangers”  Lisa Letson, Pastor's Wife, First Baptist Arcadia
     Do you know your neighbors?  Do you respond compassionately to the needs next door?  Through His Word, Jesus reminds us that God’s compassion toward us overflows when we show compassion to others.  Christian hospitality sees our homes as not our own, but as God’s tools for the furtherance of His Kingdom.   Do we welcome those who look, think, believe, and act    differently from us into our everyday---sometimes messy lives---helping them see what true     Christian faith really looks like.  Explore how God can use you to bring the gospel and minister    grace to friends, neighbors, and even strangers.

“Do the Flamingo”  Diane Benson, Retired Pastor’s Wife and Teacher @ Charlotte High School
     No it’s not a new dance!  But you will take a look at those bright and beautiful, tall and      magnificent, pretty and pink flamingos!  What can we learn from these awesome creatures?  It is  amazing what God can teach us through His creation. I can assure you, you will be ready to do the flamingo at the end of this breakout!

“Life Interrupted"  Nancy Lee  Women's Retreat Team
     Trading our expectations for the reality of God’s plan.  Romans 8:28 promises that ALL things  work together for His glory and our good.  But what happens when our lives take a turn we could have never predicted?  How do we respond when He surprises us with changes we didn’t see coming?  Will we be crushed by the gap between what we expected and what is our reality?  Listen to the truth about the importance of laying down our dreams and expectations for the future and trading it for the beauty of God’s plans.

Below is not a breakout conference but will be the Friday afternoon activity.  We need your ladies to let us know if they would like to participate so that we can have enough supplies.  RSVP with your retreat reservations.  Thank you!!

“Painting with Janelle”  ~ Janelle Chastain will be leading us in a painting activity that you will be able to take home as a reminder of your weekend “Flamingle” experience.
