EMPOWERED: Knowing Christ Well and Making Him Well-known, for Such a Time as This

Featuring Becky Pippert author of Out of the Saltshaker and Into the World and Stay Salt

What are the cultural challenges for sharing the gospel today? How does God equip us through the power of the Holy Spirit to share our faith? How can we raise the topic of faith without being intrusive? At the 2022 Women’s Retreat, Becky will show us that our inadequacy is compulsory, God’s truth is all we need, and God has already given us a model for how to share His love to the world.

After nearly two years of navigating the challenges of the pandemic, we are pleased to be hosting the 2022 retreat here at McLean Presbyterian! This will be a rewarding time to reunite with old friends and learn more about how we can reengage with the world around us — sharing the hope we have in Christ.
