2023 Retreat is at Wellspring Retreat Center, Blanco, February 17-19. Click here for more information and registration form!
Each year the UWF sponsors a retreat, usually in February, open to all women, at a nearby retreat center. It includes worship, Bible study, and time for laughter as well as quiet reflection. We usually begin with dinner on Friday evening and finish after Sunday morning worship. The registration fee covers five delicious meals and fun and refreshing activities, along with comfortable lodging. We take time to relax, make new friends, worship, and draw closer to God.
