Women’s Weekend

Relationships, Desires, and Disappointments: Gospel Hope and Help

Join Us May 1-3, 2020 at Harvey Cedars Bible Conference

Ever felt disappointed by someone? Ever had deep desires thwarted over and over again?

The heartache of these common experiences are tough to navigate emotionally, and sometimes difficult to understand spiritually. If God gives us desires, then why don’t we get what we want when it’s not sinful things we’re craving? And if God’s desire is that we’d have loving and satisfying relationships, then why do they seem to be so hard? 

This retreat delves into these tough topics, seeking to provide biblical encouragement for the amazing ways that God uses desires and disappointments as both a gift and a trial. Through Jesus Christ, our desires, disappointments and relationships are transformed into pathways which draw us closer to him, and propel us to love people from a free and whole heart.

Join us for a weekend digging in to God’s word together and growing in community!

Each year, the women of New Life Glenside (+ family or friends who would like to come!) spend a weekend together, composed of time in the Word and in worship as well as opportunities to build community in small group activities and discussions.

Our time together for the 2020 Women’s Weekend begins Friday evening, May 1 and runs through Sunday afternoon, May 3.

His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.
2 Peter 1:3-4
