Flathead Lutheran Bible Camp

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

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


Time for God:  We have all the time we need… 

As adults, we don’t always believe that we have all the time we need, especially time for God! We struggle to “make” time for God, instead of embracing the ways God is present with us at all times. At this retreat, we will explore how our Christian faith tradition  understands time — daily prayer time, Sabbath time, and time throughout the church year. How can these Christian traditions help us reform our relationship with time? How might we come to trust that all time is holy?

Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication.” Ephesians 6:18


Our Guest presenter will be Pastor Miriam Schmidt

Pastor Miriam Schmidt proudly hails from NYC but was smitten with the Rocky Mountains at age 18 when she went to work at Sky Ranch Lutheran Camp in Colorado. Since that time, she has embraced the West, living in New Mexico and Washington State before moving to Montana, a state she is now glad to call home.

Pastor Miriam has served as the Pastor of First Lutheran Church in Plains, as well as the Bratislava International Church in Bratislava, Slovakia, through ELCA Global Mission. She presently serves as Pastor/Priest of All Saints in Big Sky, a shared ministry of the Episcopal and Lutheran churches in Big Sky.

She is married to Jeremy Blyth, and they have two daughters, Ursula (in fourth grade) and Esme (in kindergarten). Pastor Miriam loves camping, hiking, and skiing with her family, reading to her girls at nighttime, and gathering friends and family around their table for fellowship and feasting.
