MOUNT VERNON — All women of any age or faith or no particular faith are invited to a women’s retreat to be held June 30 at Faith Lutheran Church, 170 Mansfield Ave. Called Renew, Respond and Rejoice, the retreat will give women a chance to renew, reflect, pray and meditate on their relationship with God and to rejoice in their faith.
Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. and activities will begin in the church’s fellowship hall at 9 a.m. where participants will learn to make and keep a journal they can use during the actual retreat.
The remainder of the retreat will be held in the sanctuary of the Stone Garden. Ruthe Kinsler will be leading the Renew session. Cheryl Johnson is the leader for Session Respond and Session Rejoice will be conducted by Mary Leigh Wildermuth.
Following communion and closing by Pastor Mark Wildermuth, the retreat will conclude at 3 p.m.
