Regretfully, the 2021 Women’s Fall Retreat has been cancelled due to Covid.  Hope to see you in 2022! 

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

When Maps Fail: Traveling with God

The psalms guide us in an exploration of the Prefixes of Faith. Together we will ground our time in the unique nature of the psalms as prayerbook and God’s word to us. Through interactive workshops, table conversations, and prayer practices, we will discover the psalms engaging us in all our seasons of life, no matter what prefixes we may be living. We will encounter our cries and prayers met in the Psalms as we traverse seasons of dis-ease and dis-comfort and as we seek re-newel and re-storation. Come as you are. 

Psalms 42:1 Just like a deer that craves streams of water, my whole being craves you, God. (CEB)

OUR GUEST PRESENTER is Reverend Courtney Artnzen.  After 13 years serving as a Montana pastor, I ventured beyond the church walls seeking to explore spiritual curiosities and sacred questions with the institutionally suspicious. My network of faith and community leaders opened my eyes to Missoula’s great need for accessible spiritual care outside of traditional faith communities. Ultimately, my passion and belief in accessible spiritual care for all people drive my work; the hardships of 2020 only further my conviction. I serve Missoula as a Community Chaplain and Spiritual Director.  I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Speech Communication from the University of Washington and a Master of Divinity from Regent College, British Columbia. I am working toward my certificate in the Art of Spiritual Direction through San Francisco Theological Seminary.

Book Discussion : Land of My Heart by Tracie Peterson

Read the book and join in the book discussion during one of the sessions on Saturday.  

Book 1 of Heirs of Montana from bestselling author Tracie Peterson. Adventurers, families, outlaws. . .all driven west in the 1860s by a longing for endless blue sky along with wild and wide open spaces. Tracie Peterson, from her own Montana home, paints an unforgettable portrait of this rich, rugged landscape, populated by strong and spirited characters. When Dianne Chadwick urges her family to move west to her uncle’s ranch in the Montana Territory, she has no idea that her new life in the rugged frontier and even within her uncle’s home will not be the idyllic adventure she expects. But first she has to survive the arduous wagon journey with the help of guide Cole Selby, whose heart seems to be as hard as the mountains he loves.
