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.

Holding onto Hope: One-day Women’s Retreat

April 6, 2024

10:00 am-5:00 pm

The Mendenhall Inn

323 Kennett Pike, Rt 52, Chadds Ford, Pa.

Somewhere along the way, someone probably told you not to get your hopes up. You don’t want to end up disappointed, they warned.

But what if hope isn’t the problem? What if hope is the solution?

God designed you to carry hope in your heart. Whether you’re tempted to give up on a dream, goal, situation, person, or yourself, God hasn’t given up, and He doesn’t want you to either.

Each attendee will receive a copy of Heather’s new book, “Holding onto Hope.”

Bring your girlfriends and make it a weekend!

Our retreat may be just one day, but bring your friends and make it a weekend getaway! Stroll the streets of Kennett Square. Enjoy the beauty of Longwood Gardens.

Our event is at the beautiful Mendenhall Inn. Book a room or check out nearby hotels. Note that lodging is not included in the retreat cost.

Longwood Gardens

Longwood Gardens is only two miles away and is an incredibly gorgeous place any time of the year–but especially during their Spring Blooms when the outdoors are coming alive with color. If you spend the weekend, you don’t want to miss visiting and breathing in the color and beauty. There are things to see inside and outside. Vegetarian options at the cafe and dining room. You will need to reserve timed tickets for entry.

Things to Do

Stroll the streets of Kennett Square–the mushroom capital of the world–where State Street features an array of locally owned businesses, charming shops, farm-fresh eateries and plenty of small-town charm. Visit the nearby Brandywine Museum of Art.

Our Ministries

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. The hotel conference includes breakout seminars on a variety of practical topics. The events also feature a track for teens.

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. The afternoon event features stories of princesses from the Bible along with crafts, games, and fun. Attend a Conference event or plan your own. Download our Princess Tea Ministry Resource.

God’s Girls Gala is our ministry to middle-school aged girls. Our focus is encouraging and equipping young women as they transition from little girls to teens. Each Gala tackles relevant topics with a Seventh-day Adventist biblical background, intentionally designed to remind girls of who they are in Christ and to learn to live confidently as the young woman He specifically created them to be
