With only one or two exceptions in our 25 year history, the men of Kingsway have pulled away for several days every fall to learn how to be a godly man. The men’s retreat has become one of our favorite traditions, which has prompted some gentlemen (and not a few ladies) to ask over the years, “Why can’t the women have an annual retreat of their own?”

This summer, ladies, you can.

Mark your calendars for July 17-19. For three days, women from seven Sovereign Grace churches in the mid-Atlantic region are gathering at Crossway Community Church in Charlotte, NC for a regional women’s conference. The conference will focus on how to be a godly influence as a woman in the world, the home, and the workplace.

“Ladies’ retreats provide wonderful opportunities to grow in our relationship with the Lord and our friendships with one another,” says Liz Emerson. “And traveling to Charlotte will provide lots of time to talk, share meals together, and even get to know ladies from other churches in our region.”

The conference is open to women 13 and older. Registration (only $30) as well as hotel information and a schedule of events is available on the conference website.

Let me close with a brief word to the married men (especially if your wife has young children). Your wife needs this, guys. Her role in our community is not one bit less significant in the eyes of God than your own. If you’ve benefitted from our annual men’s retreat, find a way to send your wife to this conference. Make it a priority for the summer. Trust me, you won’t regret the investment.
