The annual Seventh Day Baptist Appalachian Association Women’s Retreat was held at Camp Joy the weekend of September 22-24, 2017.

There were a total of 31 women attending the retreat from SDB churches in Alabama, Georgia, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia.

The program was planned by women from the Shepherd’s Fold SDB church in Tennessee this year with the theme “Running the Race.” Sessions were taught by Brenda Rankhorn and Cate Abraham on the topics of Focus, Training, Discipline, and Living Graciously. Women attending from Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio prepared and provided the yummy meals!

In addition to the teaching sessions, there was free time to enjoy the rustic and beautiful camp setting as well as fellowship with new and old friends. The weekend was a time to eat, sing, worship, pray, hug, talk, play, laugh, and learn together. By Sunday morning, the women were refreshed as they left to return home and also looking forward to next year!

The annual women’s retreat is scheduled for the last full weekend of September each year at Camp Joy in Berea, WV. Any interested women are welcome to attend. Next year’s retreat will be planned by the women in Salemville, PA, and held September 28-30, 2018.
