The Lord has assured us, “I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” (Philippians 4:13) You will be reminded of this promise when you join us for the 4th annual Women’s Retreat hosted by Bethany Lutheran College.

The weekend’s events kick off on Friday evening when we will dine and be entertained at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre by the hit musical, Hairspray.
