Come to the Well – UCW Women’s Retreat

Come to the Well

UCW Women’s Retreat

Toah Nipi Retreat Center, Rindge, NH

6:30 p.m., Friday, May 4 – 11:00 a.m., Sunday, May 6

 What:  We cannot live without water.  Water is essential to life. In biblical times (as in many cultures around the world today), the source of water was a well and women were the ones who came to the well to draw water for their families.  As such, wells were a meeting place, a place of encounter where women gathered not only to draw up the water but also to share with each other, to hear the news of their lives, to be friends in their community.  We invite the women of the church to “come to the well” on May 4 – 6th.

Why:   This will be a time to enjoy each other’s company, share our stories and grow together in love and hope — a time to draw deeply of the nourishing waters of our faith and to be refreshed and renewed by God’s word and presence.
