Women's Retreat

Women's Retreat - May 3-4, 2019
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. Contact Denise Dugan, denise@sacchome.org, for more information.
