Our weekend retreat is for every woman: the daughter, mother, sister and friend who longs to steal away and share some special time with the Lord. It's for the woman who makes art often and for the woman who hasn’t spent much time making art at all. By exploring creativity in worship, we open our hearts to hear from God in a whole new way.
With large group gatherings and intimate breakouts, our time at Draw Near is designed to give you a genuine worship experience. We will explore things like creative prayer, watercolor, mixed media art, writing, worship through hospitality, even experiencing God in nature. Our prayer is that you will leave our time together having found a new place of worship with a fresh heart for God.
**The retreat includes all food, lodging and materials**
Each attendee will have the opportunity to choose two different art workshops to enjoy. Some of our past workshops have been: weaving, abstract painting, jewelry making and hand lettering. In addition to two choice workshops there is a large group workshop for all of our women on Saturday morning.
There are four main sessions at Draw Near, two soul care breakout sessions, and even Tea Time on Friday. This spring our session speakers are Jill Forbes, Megan Faulkner and April Knight. On Friday there are topic based Soul Care Sessions. Attendees will choose and attend by preference.
So many unique touches make up the Draw Near retreat. And we won't tell you all of them because everyone loves a good surprise. You can view each location for the rest of our weekend details like accommodations and a full schedule of events including our late night fun!
