Women's Retreat:  Made in the Image of God

Led by Pastor Dale Selover and Rev. Laurie Matarazzo  

  

What does it mean to be made in the image of God?

Too often we struggle with image.

Culture dictates what our image should be,

while many wrestle with their own sense of self-image.

Join us as we celebrate what it means to be made in the image of God

through prayer, fellowship, scripture and song.

The Church confesses Christ, who has broken down the dividing wall (Ephesians 2:14). Christ, our
peace, has put an end to the hostility of race, ethnicity, gender, and economic class. The Church
proclaims Christ, confident this good news sets at liberty those captive behind walls of hostility
(cf. Luke 4:18).
