Women's Retreat 2018.png


Enjoy three days of worship, rest, laughter, connecting with old friends, making new friends, late night ice cream runs, praying for each other, gorgeous hikes, and discovering more about the character of God at Creekside's annual women's retreat at Mount Hermon in the Santa Cruz mountains. All women over the age of 13 are welcome. You do not need to attend Creekside to come to the retreat.


This year's theme is "Unsearchable Riches: Exploring God's Character." Jenny Sloat, Rachel Butler, Patti Boyland, and Liz Bazar will be speaking. 


The retreat begins at dinner at 7:00 p.m. Friday, January 26th and ends after lunch at 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 28th. In addition to times of teaching, sharing, and worship, you will enjoy six delicious meals in the dining hall, and have plenty of free time to hike among the redwoods and ferns on one of Mount Hermon's streamside trails, enjoy the MacAfee Fieldhouse, which features ping-pong, air hockey, and other games as well as basketball and volleyball courts, sip a latte at the coffee shop, play board games, explore boutiques and antique shops in the nearby towns of Capitola, Aptos, and Santa Cruz, browse through an excellent selection of books in the gift shop, see an old growth redwood forest at Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, eat delicious ice cream at the Mount Hermon snack shop or at the amazing Marianne's Ice Cream in downtown Santa Cruz, and much more!
