“2018 Women’s Retreat”


The Women’s Retreat Committee would like to remind you that we must receive all registrations for this year’s retreat by Friday, March 30th. You will find information regarding this event immediately below. We hope to see you there!


We invite you to Register now for Redeemer Presbyterian Church’s seventh annual Women’s Retreat scheduled for Saturday, April 7, 2018.

We have found a wonderful, welcoming place for our retreats at the First Methodist Church on the corner of West 7th and Sassafras Streets in Erie and we have arranged to have this year’s Retreat there as well.

This church has a spacious upstairs room where we can comfortably meet. It also has beautiful restrooms and the building is completely handicap accessible.

Our theme for this year’s retreat is “God’s Extreme Makeover.” We are preparing special makeover activities, a delicious lunch, warm fellowship, and take-home gifts for all attendees. The Retreat begins at 9:00 a.m. and concludes at 2:30 p.m.

One thing we would like to request of our Redeemer women is that you pray about an unchurched woman you could invite to attend this retreat. We will offer free registration to all unchurched women and any students you might invite.

Of course, women from other churches may register to attend. They are always welcome.

The Women’s Retreat is a wonderful way to introduce Christ’s love and our warm fellowship to new people.

Due to the necessary logistics for this Retreat and the limited space available, we simply cannot accept any walk-in Registrations on the day of the event. Therefore, you must Register and pay for this event in advance.

To Register for this event: Please click on the button below. Print out the Registration Form and—no later than Friday, March 30, 2018—mail that Form, along with your check made payable to “Redeemer Presbyterian Church,” to the address indicated.





When I pick up a tea bag, or box of new tea, I read such captions as, “A Robust Blend with a Captivating Aroma!”

That has me thinking. Isn’t that what our Women’s Ministry should be?

I looked up some definitions and came up with these from my trusty Webster’s:

Robust—having strength or vigorous health: firm in purpose or outlook: strongly formed.

Blend—to prepare by thoroughly intermingling different varieties or grades: to combine into an integrated whole.

Captivating—influencing by some special charm, or trait with an irresistible appeal.

Aroma—a distinctive pervasive and usually pleasant smell.

We at Redeemer Presbyterian Church pray that the women we touch will grow in health, strength, and purpose—intermingling our gifts and personalities to benefit all of us together. We also pray that our witness for Christ will captivate with an irresistible appeal those who need to hear the gospel. As Paul said in 2 Corinthians 2:14 (ESV):

But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him [Christ] everywhere.

Consider this week how you, along with your women friends whom God has blended together, can represent Christ providing “A Robust Blend with a Captivating Aroma!”
