Women's Retreat

Women's Retreat
All Women are invited to our annual retreat held in the spring at Tall Oaks Conference Center in Linwood, KS. You only have to say the words “women’s retreat” to anyone who has attended and you’ll quickly see the enthusiasm, energy, and inspiration that resulted from their two days with other amazing women. Registration forms become available in January. Contact Denise Dugan, denise@sacchome.org, for more information.

Quarterly Women's Events

We sponsor quarterly women's events to which all women at Saint Andrew are invited! They are usually a potluck Soup & Salad Lunch with lots of yummy soups, salads, and desserts with an interesting speaker on a timely subject. Watch this space for the next Quarterly Women's Event!
