Event Description

This year’s retreat will be held April 5-7, 2019.

Our theme for the weekend is The Holy Spirit:  The Ministry of the Third Person of the Trinity.

“When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth.”  John 16:13a

The third person of the Trinity plays an essential role in our salvation and our spiritual growth, but how much do we really understand of the Holy Spirit?  Join us as we look at what it means to be led by the Spirit, to draw upon Him in our personal life, and how He equips us for serving others in the body of Christ. We invite you to experience a weekend of refreshment, learning, reflection, and renewal.

This will be the second year that Southern California Women’s Conference (SCWC) will be held at Murrieta Hot Springs Christian Conference Center in Murrieta. Overwhelmingly, the women who attended last year’s retreat gave great, positive feedback on the new venue, including,

“Lots closer, beautiful grounds and great food well served.”
“I love the hot springs!”
“It’s fabulous!”
