I thought the perfect way to end our 31 Days of Retreat Planning would be to give you a Retreat Planning Timeline.
We’ve worked through a pile of details and it can be helpful to organize the pieces all in one place.
A neat thing happened after our retreat this year.
Quite by accident we were able to keep some of our retreat momentum going.
Prayer Stations can provide an opportunity for your women to respond to God, meditate on His word, and connect with the retreat message on a deeper level.
We used Prayer Stations at our retreat this fall and it was a huge hit!
No matter the size of your retreat group, there will be women that do not know each other.
Whether it’s because they attend a different service, a different Sunday school class, or came with a friend, they will need opportunities to make connections.
As was modeled before me, our teams have always sent a letter to the retreat participants.
Back in the day we used to send them through the mail, however due to the fact that almost everyone has email and postage can add up quickly, we now send them electronically.

Between the speaker sessions, discussion groups, prayer, meals, worship, and icebreakers, the schedule is filling up fast!
Decorations can be a fun way to play up the theme of your women’s ministry retreat.
Lighthouses, oversize coffee cups, mason jars with flowers, bowls of fruit, and princess crowns.
