Anchored in Hope

Home > Latest Updates > 2014 Articles >
125 ladies from various parts of British Columbia gathered together at Camp Hope from September 26 -28 for the BC Conference 2014 Women’s Fall Retreat. The theme Anchored in Hope was very appropriate as it brought hope and confidence to all who attended the Retreat. Cheri Gregory, the guest speaker from Monterey Bay Academy, California, was dynamic, funny, and gave us a better understanding of our Heavenly Father.

The weekend topics included: Getting Out from Over Underwhelmed, Finding Freedom from Fear, Giving Up Control, and Living Loved. Morning devotionals on Saturday and Sunday were presented by Janet Talburt and Anna Heinrichs respectively. Saturday afternoon, Cheri also had a seminar on the different Purse-onality which gave us more understanding on why people act and behave the way they do. It was interesting to see how different people’s purses of various sizes and colors reflect their personality.

Talent show on Saturday night was hilarious and very much enjoyable. It was amazing to see how many unknown talents were revealed.

Everyone, including the many non-Adventists who attended this retreat was fed well both spiritually and physically. It was close to noon on Sunday when the group left Camp Hope. They will long remember this retreat with the thought-provoking presentations, the beautiful Camp Hope fall scenery, the music that lifted them heavenward, the excellent food they enjoyed and the fellowship they had with each other.

For Church District Information: Cheri is willing to do weekend presentations at no cost to Adventist churches provided her travel and accommodation are taken care of.
