Spring 2018 Retreats and Events
Women's Retreat: Stones of Rememberance
In an age when words more often hurt than heal, our stories of God’s faithfulness are more important than ever. But where do we start? Come learn more about how and when to share your faith story and connect with other faithful women in a calm, relaxing retreat with speaker Carie Roth at Camp Tomah Shinga.
Carie Roth is an experienced Bible study teacher and certified life coach from the Kansas City area. She is a passionate follower of Jesus and a journaling junky who enjoys playing piano, having long conversations with friends, and spending time with her husband of 28 years and three adult children.
Lutherans Restoring Creation Workshop
February 17th, 2018
Please plan to join other Creation Lovers for a workshop/retreat as we plan for the future – in our
Synod, in the Midwest, and in our congregations! Our time together will be from 9 am – 5 pm, with options for overnight stays on Friday and/or Saturday.
We’ll be doing the following:
- Hearing a report from a February 2-3 LRC event in GA from four of our Mission
- Table members who are attending
- Sharing lots of good ideas
- Brainstorming about moving forward with LRC – in our Congregations, Synod, and
- Hearing from Tomah Shinga staff about their creation care initiatives
- Providing tools to take home for immediate action
Thanks to a generous legacy grant from Faith Lutheran Church in Prairie Village, Kansas, many
of the costs of this event will be covered. A deposit of $20 will hold your place for the event.
