The 2010 Ladies’ Fall Breakaway took place on Friday September 17th and Saturday September 18th. Around thirty-five women of CRC joined over seventy-five women from Christ Memorial Church at Smuggler’s Notch Resort in Vermont. The women stayed in four-bedroom condos and enjoyed time to connect, encourage, and reflect.
Dori Willeman was the retreat speaker and shared “Reflections on Joy: How the Gospel Develops Joyful Community.” On Friday night, Dori used Luke 7:36-50 to illustrate how the gospel gives us new eyes towards ourselves. Saturday morning, she explained Philippians 2:1-11 and how the gospel gives us a new heart towards “one another.” Dori brought her teaching to a close with 1 Peter 1:1-9; 4:12-13, showing how the gospel releases us in joyful service of God’s world. In addition to Dori’s teaching, the women spent time in singing praise and in praying for the women’s ministries of both churches. The women had a wonderful time of interaction with the gospel and interaction with one another in the gospel.
