JANUARY 26 - 28, 2018


Ladies, join us for a weekend of spiritual growth, fellowship and fun!

This year we will meet at Cathedral Oaks Worship & Retreat Center in Weimar, TX. This beautiful wooded property was donated to the Southwest Texas Annual Conference back in 1983. It boasts a large dining hall, Chapel, outdoor worship space, and comfortable sleeping accommodations.

Shannon accepted Jesus Christ as her savior at the tender age of 6.  She earned her Master’s Degree in Education/Counseling.  She worked in the public  school system as a teacher and a counselor.  She now spends her time as a recording artist, speaker, author, and TV host.

Shannon’s  4-session series is titled "If the Shoe Fits."  The Friday night session will be on the light side.  The three sessions on Saturday will be more serious and spiritual.  She will help us to see the women God wants us to be.

Teach me your way, oh Lord, and I will walk in your truth. Psalm 86:11

Weekend Activities

In addition to our speaker, there will be time for games, mission projects, shopping in the local stores, walking the beautiful grounds or even taking naps! Relax all you want or be as active as you want. Come together in Christian fellowship and meet new friends. You may also want to take a self-guided tour of the Painted Churches in the area. We will provide a map and tour brochure that you can pick up in the dining hall.

Additional Information 

Plan on arriving at the retreat center anytime after 4 p.m. to check in, unpack, get acquainted, and prepare for a meal.

We will provide a meal on Friday evening, so no need to stop and get something on the way.

We will begin serving dinner at 6 p.m. and the program will start at 7:30 p.m.

There will be no t-shirts this year.
