What are R&R Retreats?
A place for women to gather in a context of community where the Word of God is delivered, discussed and digested in ways that lead to deeper, fuller LIFE.
What do the "R's" stand for?
Our "R's" stand not for the typical 'rest and relaxation' but rather 'Roses and Raspberries.' It seems a little odd until you understand that roses and raspberries bloom and bear fruit in the midst of pressing thorns … and so shall we dear ones, so shall we!!
Who can attend?
Women of any age or stage. It doesn't matter if you're 18 or 90! We often have college students conversing with elderly women and laughing as if they're best friends. We love the variety and encourage it!
Do I have to go to church to come?
Absolutely not. There are many women who are very involved in their local church and have been for years. But you'll also find women who aren't sure what they believe and others who are in the process of deepening their faith. You'll quickly see that there are people from all walks of life and that's the beauty of these retreats.
What is the format?
Retreats are typically once a month, 6 months out of the year. They're held for 2 hours which is short enough that it won't interfere too much with your day, while making sure we give you plenty of time to be refreshed. You'll be amazed at what can happen in just 2 hours.
Is there a cost to attend?
No, they have always been designed to be entirely free! However, you will have an opportunity to give a freewill offering which impacts others both locally and globally.
Can I attend a retreat even if I don't come to all six?
Absolutely! Each retreat is unique and stands on it’s own, however they all connect under our yearly theme. If you miss a retreat, no worries; we have an archive of previous teachings on this site.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
We suggest you bring your favorite mug, a journal and pen, a Bible if you have one, and offering if you care to give.
What is this year's theme?
The 2015-2016 theme is RETURN TO REST and is taken from Psalm 116:7 where David speaks to his own soul. "Return to your rest, O my soul..." he says. Let's relocate rest (where is it hiding, anyway??) and return our souls securely there.
