Hillside Women’s Fall Retreat 2017


The definition of retreat is “an act of moving back or withdrawing” and that is exactly what we are inviting the ladies of Hillside to do. Let’s retreat from busy schedules and to-do lists and expectations and connect. Connect with other Hillside ladies and connect with God. This year our Women’s Retreat is going to look very different. In order to give you space to slow down, pull back and withdraw from normal life, we have booked a hostel at a lighthouse, just 1hour south of Marin in Montara, CA. The schedule is very light and that is on purpose. We want you to have time to read a book, take a nap, have a long chat with a new friend, take a walk on the beach, journal…. Do whatever refreshes and refills your soul.

Saturday afternoon is yours to do as you please. Because Point Montara Lighthouse is literally on the beach you have accesses to swimming, surfing, kayaking, windsurfing, and horseback riding. The hostel is also the perfect base for exploring the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, Pillar Point Harbor and Marsh, the Devil’s Slide Coastal Trail, Mount Montara, and the quaint coastal town of Half Moon Bay. Or you can do nothing at all and take a nap or watch the waves roll in.=

**Something else new and fun to look forward to is Saturday night dinner. After our speaker shares on Saturday evening we will break into small groups (that you choose) and go out to dinner. We will send you with some small group discus- sion questions to keep you connecting with the message. Your group will get to pick where you go to eat (we will give you a list of options). It’s going to be a great weekend! We hope you will join us for this year’s Hillside Women’s Retreat!

We are thrilled to have Andrea Coli joining us as our speaker! We have heard her at Hillside and at past women's retreats. Her energy, humor and wisdom from God has made her a favorite among many Hillsiders. Andrea will also be joining us Friday night for Game Night, so there will be plenty of opportunities to connect with her.
