Bible Study

Our spiritual focus will be discussing Genesis 1-11, using the book, God of Creation by Jen Wilkin as a resource.

You are not obligated to get the book in order to come to the retreat. It is simply a tool to help you get started now studying Genesis 1-11. The book will help you dig deeply in the passage on your own and will ask challenging questions to help you understand and apply the text.

We also encourage you to join a discussion group with other ladies to discuss what you have learned and watch a video of Jen Wilkin teaching the passage. Please contact Marsha Love if interested in the book and joining a discussion group. The cost of the book is $14. We tentatively have 3 discussion groups forming, all on Thursdays: 9:30 a.m. in Jackson, 4:30 p.m. in Jackson, and 7 p.m. at church. Discussion groups start September 5.

If you choose to use the book, it is divided into 10 lessons/weeks. We will discuss what we have learned at the retreat. (Some may share and some may be more comfortable just listening, which is fine.)

Location

Blue Harbor Resort, nestled on the western shore of the always-majestic Lake Michigan in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, presents a stunning view all unto itself. We will be staying in the 4 Bedroom Villas. Waterpark passes are included for those interested.

We will be asking each lady to bring a food item for Friday dinner/Saturday breakfast. Watch for a sign-up as we get closer to the Retreat.
