Women's Retreat 2022

Women's Retreat 2022 was such a blessing. Holly Schilinski shared from Isaiah 40, encouraging us to "wait upon the Lord." Through personal stories and Biblical accounts we were challenged to be still, in hope and trust, listening for what God would have call us too.

Bethan Tillman lead worship throughout the weekend. We also enjoyed a great time of prayer along with fun and fellowship.

Mark your calendar for Retreat 2023-March 31 & April 1.

Those that wait upon the Lord.

Speaker: Holly Schilinski is originally from England but spent her teen years in Slovakia where her family was missionaries. She went to Bible School in Florida and now lives in Cameroon. She is a quintessential “third culture kid”!  She and her husband have four children and have been missionaries in Cameroon, Africa for the past 18 years. They run an orphanage and evening bible school and strive to shine the light of Jesus to all they come in contact with. Holly loves to play guitar, cook, hike, run, and lift weights!



The Midwest District Women's Retreat takes place in early April. It is held at Timber Lakes Retreat Center near Ottawa, KS. It features engaging speakers and contemporary worship. Each year our women gather to worship and build stronger relationships with God and each other.
