Diocesan Women's Retreat

  • Cascade Camp and Conference Center 22825 Piessner Road Southeast Yelm, WA, 98597 United States (map)

We hope you can join us for our annual Women's Retreat at Cascadia Camp and Conference Center in Yelm. Our speaker this year is Theresa Newell, Theresa has led over 50 biblical study tours to Israel and today serves as CMJ USA Director of  Communications. She was the North America Coordinator of the Lausanne Consultation  on Jewish Evangelism (LCJE) from 1999 to 2007. A journalist by training, Theresa completed a Masters in Biblical Studies (OT) and a Doctor of Ministry degree at Trinity School for Ministry, Ambridge, PA. Theresa and her husband Bruce live in New Holland PA and together they have eight children, 31 grand children and 3 great-granddaughters.       

Theresa will be sharing with us from the book of Ruth...

God's covenantal promise in the Book of Ruth assures provision of a redeemer. Sure enough: Boaz faithfully stepped up as her kinsman-redeemer. And what about us, two millennia later? Theresa will guide our discussion about God's covenantal promises of the Old Testament, how His promise-keeping is shown in Ruth’s life, and how this applies to our own lives.

Introduction: Ruth - The Link in God's Covenantal Love

Session 1: Israel and Nations - God's Gracious Love

Session 2: "As it Happened" - God's Providential Love

Session 3: The Threshing Floor - God's Righteous Love

Session 4: Marriage and Baby - God's Faithful Love
