 2020 Women's Retreat 
We are moving to a new place!
Christian Retreat Center
1200 Glory Way Blvd., Bradenton, FL
September 24-26, 2020

January 11, 2020 

Dear Sisters in Christ!

2020 begins a new decade! and the Women’s Retreat team is excited to bring you to a new facility!  For a few years we have been considering changing venues for the annual women’s retreat.  After looking at several places we think we have found a place that you will like, Christian Retreat Center.  It is in Bradenton, on the east side of Interstate 75, located at 1200 Glory Way.  The drive for most all will be just about the same.

The dates will be September 24-26, 2020. 

The theme for 2020 will be….

“Are you flirting with Jesus?...or is it real?”

"But it is good for me to draw near to God; I have put my trust in the Lord God, That I may declare all Your works." Psalm 73:28 NKJV


Each church is being sent a flyer and three forms are as follows:

~Registration form with a deposit amount due date on April 30, 2020

~2nd Registration form with final balances due and a Rooming List ~ both due August 28, 2020

These forms and payments are to be sent to: Diane Joens, 1981 NE Voss Circle, Arcadia, FL  34266.
Your church check should be made out to Peace River Baptist Association.

At this facility all rooms will be the same style, motel.  Each room is a spacious room with two queen beds, bathroom, a television, coffee pot, and all linens.  Rooms are big enough for most of your groups to gather in for some fellowship time!  It is a three story building.  We have reserved 50 rooms which is all of the first and second floors and part of the third.  There are stairs and an elevator.  There is much less walking between the motel area, dining hall, and conference area.  On the main hotel floor there is a large cozy lounge with beautiful views of the inlet off the Manatee River as well as the river.  Outside you will be able to use a heated pool and lounge area.  There is also a relaxing lighted, uncovered outdoor patio adjacent to the conference center entrance.

We are working on the program, securing our guest speaker, and a missions project.  Please pray for your women’s retreat team as they seek what God would have them put together that will glorify Him and bring our ladies into a deeper relationship with their Lord God.

Looking forward!

Your Women’s Retreat Team
