2022 Women's Retreat

Step away from the normal rhythms of life and connect with God and other women Nov 11-13

hope·full is a weekend designed by women of ECC and Riverside to create space for you to step away from the normal rhythms of life and connect with God and other women. We will explore 1 Peter 1:3-9 as we learn to live in Hope in the midst of real life and to be filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy.
