2018 Women’s Weekend

Whether you are a member or a friend of Sixth, you are invited to attend the annual. Women’s Retreat at Crestfield Camp and Conference Center on the weekend of September 28-30. It will be a time of renewal, a time to get to know one another better, and a time to study, worship, and play. We hope all women of Sixth will join us for this time together!

Our Retreat leader this year is Rev. Susan Rothenberg. The topic is entitled: God, Improv and the Art of Living, Getting from “Yes But” to “Yes And”. Please check out the August Sixth Sense newsletter on our website for more detail on this topic.

When not involved in the programming, you can choose to join in a hymn sing on Friday, enjoy God’s holy place that is Crestfield, play games, read or rest and, of course, socialize. We will probably have a craft if you are interested. On Saturday afternoon, there will be an opportunity to canoe on the Slippery Rock Creek for an extra $5.00. We usually enjoy a hayride Saturday evening. We worship together on Sunday morning. This year we will leave right after the service, BEFORE lunch.

We love to have babies along! If yours is not yet walking, please consider bringing him or her. You can bring a portable crib, and baby monitors work well in Scott Lodge.

Carpools will leave the church at 6:30 pm on Friday and will return late Sunday morning. You should eat dinner before we meet. Unfortunately the Dairy Queen has closed so we cannot stop there this year!!! However you’re invited to bring some munchies (sweets, pretzels, fruit etc.), to share during our free time.

This year we will have a limited amount of beds available as Crestfield has other groups coming. REGISTRATION WILL BE FIRST COME FIRST SERVED. If necessary, we can add an extra bed to a double room to have more beds. The fee for the weekend is $137. Since we receive a special weekend rate, there will be no discount for partial stays. Bedding, pillows, towels, and washcloths will be provided.

We’ll have a rooming chart set up for when you get there. If you’ve let us know who your Roommate(s) will be, your room will have been pre-assigned. If you haven’t made prior arrangements, we will assign you to a room when you arrive.

For women who cannot make it for the whole weekend, there is an option for coming up for Saturday only. The program starts at 9:00. The fee is $50 and includes two meals. The last day to register is Tuesday, September 11

There are several options of ways to sign up and pay. You can do it completely online through this link: https://give.egive-usa.com/f/f2.asp?formid=e7b2e35f-29ac-4927-99cc-5c5f85fb5136

If you prefer, the registration is attached; you can print it and return it to the office with your payment. You can also pick up a registration form in the office and return it there with your payment by check.

We hope you will plan to join us for this wonderful weekend together. If you have any questions, please contact me at 412-343-7438 or howepjs@yahoo.com.
