Oct. 24

9:30 a.m. – noon

While the entire world has been “at-home” and “alone together” for months, the Lord’s presence has been steadfast as believers have set their eyes upon the Father in the midst of chaos and uncertainty. He has met with His followers who have sought Him in the secret place and provided comfort and peace with each new day.

Join us for the 2020 N.C. Baptist Virtual Women’s Retreat as you learn from our teaching team in the areas of prayer; acts of righteousness; worry, the secret place and the kingdom; and heart of worship, as well as testimonies from women across North Carolina who share what God has taught them during the last several months, and worship through song and teaching of God’s Word.

Are you registering more than one person? Please use the Group Registration below.

But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.

Matthew 6:6
