Renewal and Relaxation for the Charis House

 In charis house, Ministry Village

Each year, toward the end of August, the women of the Charis House look forward to their annual retreat. It is a time of relaxation, reflection and renewal that is deeply appreciated and very much enjoyed.

The women take time away from their strict daily routines and volunteer work to find joy and hope in a more relaxed environment while they develop deeper appreciation for each other and their leaders. Morning and evening devotions are led by the Charis House ladies each day, and they enjoy prayer and worship time together as they share how God is radically changing their lives.

Ms. Vanessa Bettis, Director of Ladies Recovery Ministries for Ministry Village at Olive, says that the Charis House retreat provides the women and the Charis House staff a time to share and learn from each other on a more relaxed and friendly level.

The ladies are working to earn funding for this year’s retreat. They plan to hold a bake sale at the Ministry Village Bargain Center and are exploring other creative ways to raise money. Anyone who wishes to donate toward the retreat can contact Ms. Vanessa at (850) 475-1116.

Be sure to follow the Ministry Village Facebook page for updates on upcoming events.
