Pyoca Women’s Retreat: May 3-5, 2019

Rest, relax, renew.

Join us this May as we grow into spring with our women’s retreat
Flow & Grow: Creative Respite held at Pyoca May 3rd – 5th, 2019.

There is no expectation of perfection; we merely seek Sabbath and connection.

Our philosophy is that art & yoga allow us to connect to God and one another through the movement of the Holy Spirit. Over the course of the weekend each woman will discover her innate sense of creativity and discern the movement of the Spirit in her life.

Hope & Clarity: Recharge Your Spirit

Ready for a reset? Just in time for summer, Hope & Clarity: Recharge Your Spirit will be offered June 2-4, 2019 in Peoria, IL. This is your chance to join female colleagues in ministry for about 40 hours of relaxing, re-energizing and restoring. We’ll begin with a reception Sunday night at 7 pm Central, and end on Tuesday morning by 11 am Central.

We can’t promise that you’ll leave the retreat irrevocably transformed, but our intention is that you will leave strengthened, refreshed, and more connected with your self and with others.

We have a great hotel reserved for about 40 women.

We’ll begin there Sunday night at 7 pm Central for hors d’oeuvres and drinks, and informal conversation. Then we invite you to get a good night’s sleep.

On Monday (all day) and Tuesday (morning only) we’ll meet on the 12 beautiful acres of United Presbyterian Church. We’ll have small and large group discussion, worship and individual reflection time. All the things.

Drs. Caroline Burke and Krista Redlinger-Grosse will facilitate our time together.

Revs. Sue Krummel and Sara Dingman will host us.

The Synod of Lincoln Trails is directing its financial resources toward this event, regardless of your presbytery membership, so that YOU can enjoy the resources of ONE ANOTHER. You must be a PC(USA) teaching elder or certified ruling elder/commissioned lay pastor, in good standing, to attend. Whether the setting in which you serve is a congregation, a hospital, a university or college, or another missional organization, we welcome you.

Total cost to you, for two nights’ lodging and all food and conference fees, is $50 if you share a hotel room, and $150 if you’d like your own hotel room. This fee is non-refundable beginning May 1st. Some partial scholarships are available – contact Sara for more details.

Spaces are limited and registration will go live on April 1st. We are asking that colleagues from synods beyond SOLT wait until April 10th to register.

We are proud to subsidize $250+ of the actual cost per partipicant, for all participants regardless of synod membership. We are stronger together.

The Thank Offering of Presbyterian Women

Presbyterian women have been making grants to creative ministries through the Thank Offering since 1888 when Eliza Clokey of Springfield, Ohio, urged each woman to give one dollar over and above her usual contribution to the Women’s General Missionary Society of the United Presbyterian Church in North America as a “thank offering to our Lord.” Women gave sacrificially and were credited with saving the worldwide missionary movement of the church at the time. Since then, Presbyterian women have granted support to thousands of ministries worldwide, and raised millions of dollars for mission. 

In February 2017, the Creative Ministries Offering Committee of Presbyterian Women met to review 92 applications submitted for grants from the 2016 Thank Offering. Fifteen of the projects were chosen for grants totaling $382,500. Ten of the projects are ministries that serve people in need in the United States. Five of the projects are international. More than half of the funded projects are health ministries.
