2022 Fall Women's Retreat Letter


30275 Beech Rd., Punta Gorda, FL  33982



Dear Sisters!

Fall will be here before we know it!   I know we are experiencing the heat of summer and fall is on our minds!  Here’s some info for you to share with your friends at church and in the community so everyone can...Gather - Connect –­ Revive.

“Different…Am I Really” 1 Peter 2:9 tells us “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, apeople for His possession, so that you may proclaim the praises of the one who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”  Teresa Bass will be our special guest speaker this year!  Some of you may remember Teresa and her husband, Kenny, they were with us at Lake Placid a few years ago.   They are now serving at Chet’s Creek Southside Campus, Jax.  We are excited to have Teresa exploring God’s Word with us as we look at “Different…”

This year there will be two breakout choices….so you won’t have to miss any! 

              Betsy Sorrells of Arcadia will be leading “The Anxious Heart – Surrendering Your Worry”

              Peggy Weeks from Jax will be here to lead us in “Spiritual Gifts: Discovery to Energize”

Our mission project this year will bless “Pregnancy Solutions”.  Pregnancy Solutions is dedicated to Moms and Dads experiencing unexpected, unplanned, or unwanted pregnancies.  They are in Venice, Pt Charlotte, and most recently, Arcadia. They provide a number of free services.  We have enclosed a list of items that would be a blessing to them that your ladies can collect and bring to the retreat.

Ladies can arrive Saturday, September 17th anytime between 8 and 8:45 am to enjoy a continental breakfast.

For lunch you will enjoy a variety of items from a Salad Bar and a Baked Potato Bar!  Of course there will be desserts, tea, and water as well.   It is hard for us to meet all dietary restrictions, so please feel free to bring your own lunch if needed.

Registration is $30 each, please make checks out to “Peace River Baptist Association” and mail them to Diane Joens, 1981 NE Voss Circle, Arcadia, FL  34266.  We would like to receive registrations by August 22, 2022.

Please know that if this is a financial burden for someone that really wants to attend, and their church cannot assist, let us know so we can get assistance.  No lady should ever not attend because of finances. 

We look forward to seeing you September 17th at First Baptist Church of Arcadia, our host church.  They are located at:  1006 N Brevard Ave., Arcadia, Florida.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or needs. 

Looking Forward,

Your Women’s Retreat Team
