WHAT’S COMING IS BETTER THAN WHAT IS GONE
Faith is Applied as it is woven seamlessly into the fabric of daily life
We believe life is better together. Wherever we are at in our journey with Jesus, we are inter-connected by our faith in Jesus Christ.
It’s real. It’s raw. It’s relationship.
You need this time away from home to recharge. To reconnect with God and other women. You will return home excited for your place in God’s tapestry.
