Come for a weekend of relaxation, rejuvenation, fellowship and inspiration with women of faith

 April 20-22, 2018

Flathead Lutheran Bible Camp

Sponsored by:
Women of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church of America)
Five Valleys and Great Divide Cluster



Poured Out for Justice, Courage, Compassion:

Considering Women from Scripture:  Deborah, Mary Magdalene, and Lydia;

and Women from History and Today

During the retreat, Pastor Peggy Paugh Leuzinger, the Director For Evangelical Mission for the Montana Synod will lead women in study and conversation regarding women from scripture whose lives were poured out for justice, courage and compassion. During the sessions, women will also be encouraged to consider women of history and today who live courageously and confidently (even in this messy world) who inspire us to also live with justice, courage and compassion. During worship on Sunday morning, the image of the Good Shepherd will guide us as we ponder guides, mentors, and models of faith who inspire us to live out our faith in the world.

Be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.  I Timothy 4:12
