We’re Going Virtual! 44th Annual Southminster Women’s Retreat

October 24th 9:00 am – 11:30 am

Southminster’s Women’s Retreat is an annual gathering of our community of women. Your retreat planning committee seeks to create a program to provide mind-body-soul connection and deepen our sense of community at Southminster. Our Women’s Retreat strives to be inclusive and invites all women (cis, trans, femme, and gender-non conforming).

How’s Your Emotional Agility?

Join us for connection, reflection, and FUN!

Our 2020 theme, “How’s Your Emotional Agility” is based on Susan David’s TED Talk, “The gift and power of emotional courage.” We will watch her TED Talk and engage in small group discussions in order to reflect.

This virtual retreat will also feature:

  • Ice breaker – reconnect and make new friends.
  • Your own snack table, wine, and pets are included.
  • Hat Gala – Show off your creation or a hat with a story

We hope you will join us for this fun and inspiring virtual retreat!

Retreat Donations – Continue the Legacy

Women’s Retreat is a self-funded event. We do not have a line item on the church operating budget to pay for the retreat costs or scholarships. Instead, we pay for the retreat through registration fees collected, donations to the retreat, and funds from our perpetual investment fund, affectionately known as the Women’s Retreat FUNd. The FUNd was created in 1997 by Southminster women donating $22,000. That investment has offset costs for many women’s retreats!

You can continue the tradition of supporting the Women’s Retreat by donating to either or both of these:

  • The 2020 Program Costs, which would be used to defray speaker costs or scholarships requested for the current retreat
  • The Women’s Retreat FUNd, which is then invested and used for future retreats

Both of these types of donations are tax-deductible. It’s easiest if they are separate checks from the registration checks.
