2020 Women's Retreat

DWELL Women's RetreatAbout DWELL!

Come DWELL with us! We plan to pack lots into this Friday night and all day Saturday retreat, not to exclude time for you to rest, relax, and connect with other ladies. We’ll devote meaningful time to worship and the Word singing, reading, sharing, praying, and discussing! Testimonies will be shared and Saturday afternoon will include options for both indoor and outdoor activities, followed by a closing time to wrap up the retreat!

Over the years our Women’s Retreat has been one of the best places to meet the women of First Free. A place to make new friends and re-engage with long-time friends. Whether you are brand new to First Free, a guest of someone who attends our church, or you have been attending First Free for many years, you are encouraged to come and DWELL with us April 3-4.

We’re thrilled that our speaker for the retreat is Holly Krahn! Holly has a dual master's degree in Counseling Psychology and Christian Studies from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Chicago. She spent a year interning at the counseling center at Moody Bible Institute and then practiced at Heritage Family Counseling in Wichita. She was also on staff with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ) for two years and spent time in both Italy and Germany. Holly is wife to Jordan and mom to Jude (4) and Harper (1). She also teaches Psychology at Butler County Community College. In her two teaching sessions on Saturday morning, Holly will share from both the Old and New Testament as she helps us look at our God who dwells with us!
