WOMEN’S MINISTRIES

OUR MISSION

The purpose of the Women’s Ministries is to lift up Jesus Christ and to encourage women to grow in their relationship with God and understanding of His love through the value He gives them. As we are impacted by this deeper relationship with Christ, we will share Him with our family, friends, church, and community.

OUR EVENTS

Weekend Women’s Retreat – Expectant Hope

Worship
journey to expectant hope

Join speaker Denise Reinwald as she expands on four women of scripture–ardent and expectant. ONE with her back against the wall, having come to the end of her rope. ONE watching from a wall, eagerly clutching her red rope of rescue. ONE living secretly in the temple, preserving the life of Judah’s boy-king and ONE praising loudly in the temple, in her arms the boy called King of Kings. Rediscover these powerful lives inspiring and equipping us to live with a renewed and expectant HOPE!

Denise Reinwald has been gratefully practicing Medical Massage therapy for more than twenty years.  She spends her days as part of a chronic pain and addiction treatment team in Berks County, Pennsylvania.  She’s a reader, a globetrotter, a singer of songs, and a teller of stories. She uses the power of words to reveal the strength, love, and loyalty of her God.

Teen Track
for young women ages 13-19

Girl! You are created for a big purpose! Do you believe that? With so many voices out there telling us who we should be, or what we should look like, we can lean on the hope of who Jesus says we are. Are you ready to find out? “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do!” Ephesians 2:10

Speaker Natalie Lilly is a recent graduate from Southern Adventist University, and the Communication Intern at the Pennsylvania Conference. She is currently focused on equipping others to use social media to spread the good news about Jesus and is passionate about all things media-ministry related. Natalie lives in Lancaster with her husband, Devin, and they love exploring their new home state together!

Women’s Retreats

We offer two annual women’s retreat–one held at a hotel with guest speaker and a more intimate, casual event held at Laurel Lake Camp with a local speaker. Both are designed to give women the opportunity to get away, recharge, build friendships, and grow deeper in their relationship with Christ.

Princess Teas

Princess Teas, created for little girls under 12, are a great church and community outreach. designed to help little girls grow up with the foundational truth that they are God’s princesses, planned uniquely and loved deeply. Attend a Conference event or plan your own. Princess Tea Ministry Resource.
