RefresHER Day Retreat
April 22, 2017

This year’s RefresHER Retreat is a day retreat at King of Kings with the theme of Strong and Beautiful: Building Spiritual Muscle. The beauty the world sees is only skin deep. The beauty and strength that comes from our faith comes from deep within and makes us more beautiful than the world ever could. Join us as we dig deep to build the spiritual muscles that make us strong and beautiful inside and out! This is a day for women of all ages. Bring a friend, daughter, sister, or neighbor. Pamper yourself with a morning of laughter, connecting with other women, art, food, and more. Be sure to include two workshop sessions of your choice.
