As we were praying about the retreat and praying for a retreat committee we were led to such a great group of ladies that I am honored to call friends- Heather, Erin, Nancy, Jessi, Sandy, Marian, and Kim. They did their own tasks over and above what we asked and then gave 110% to everyone else. I saw them being used by God to bless so many!
Abbie Bailey and Allison Bradsher were our speakers. They are sisters in law and former church members of Covenant. The theme they chose was His Dwelling Place. Their lesson titles were God Makes A Way, United to Jesus, Practicing the Presence and Dwelling Forever. It was great to reconnect with them and sit under their teaching. They gave us a grand picture of our God and ways that I can connect with Him in my everyday life.
Julie Melucci was our worship leader. Kaitlin heard her on the latest Indelible Grace album. She sings and wrote the music for ' Come, O Come, Thou Holy Spirit' on the latest album. Julie also plays with Moriah Peters and they will be opening for Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors in the next few months. Moriah is married to Joel Smallbone who sings with For King and Country. Julie did an outstanding job leading us during worship and singing plus she was so warm and gracious. She enjoyed all the activities of the retreat.
Below is a picture of Julie and me.
