One Courageous Community
Women's Camp is an event designed to bring women together from our community of churches for a time of a REST:
Refreshed from normal routines and responsibilities
Encouraged to look beyond ourselves, to build community and redemptive relationships
Stimulated to see God's perspective in our lives
Transformed and redirected toward God
Our current culture challenges us with individualism, to look out for one's self. But we were not meant to be alone. No one was created for seclusion. Many of us have lost the understanding of God's intent for our lives. . .life together. Life together is beautiful, abundantly deep, and is how God has called us to live. Christ, who lives as part of the triune God, exemplified the richness and realities of living in community. It's time to take back our lives, demolish individualism, and embrace life in courageous community.
Women's Camp is a time to enjoy fellowship, laughter, and reveling in the generous presence of God. Join us as we seek to learn and understand what it means to be transparent and move beyond mere affinity with others. Jesus prayed in John 17 that "we may be one as He is one with the Father." One translation states, "The goal is for all of them to become on heart and mind."
Do you understand the implications of living in community? How do the words of Jesus direct your relationships? How do you live this out each day with your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and church? Kari Patterson will help us answer these questions. She will share from her heart and guide us into a deeper understanding of what it means to commune with God. . .as one body of Christ. Women's Camp is your opportunity to begin living life in community. . .courageous community!

Mission is an important aspect of being a part of community. Two ways to promote missions will be to collect an offering & offer a missions workshop. This interactive workshop is designed to help you grow your passion for missions by building healthy relationships that result in joining God's mission. Women's Camp doesn't end after this weekend. . .it continues with your mission in the community. Featured missions include: CBNW, Camp Tadmor, and Embrace Oregon. And more to come!
