"Touching Heaven" Women's Retreat

On October 6-8, the women of East Hills will take over Wright Hall, the centerpiece of Menucha Retreat Center in the Columbia Gorge, and hold their annual spiritual retreat. Ann Hight, EHA's pastor of women's ministries, will speak on the unseen hosts: demons, devils, angels, the Holy Spirit, and how they interact with us.

A $125 signup fee buys you three days and two nights in excellent facilities and beautiful surroundings. All meals are included, and the East Hills group will have several community spaces and meeting rooms to itself. However, this is less a vacation event than a spiritual enterprise. In addition to Ann's ministry, Becky Cox will lead worship from a grand piano, and you will have time for personal reflection and private devotions.

To sign up, or to find out more about the accommodations, provision for moms with nursing infants, etc., contact Ann at the church office, (360) 423-0521. In September, Ann will be sending out a detailed packet with packing checklists and suggestions on preparing your heart for this event with prayer and fasting. You can also find out more from our free retreat DVDs, which give you a short video look at Menucha's facilities and have a signup card attached.
