Event description:

Ever look around your life and wish you could escape to a peaceful moment where you were all alone with God? Here's your chance! Judson ladies will be sneaking away to the most peaceful and beautiful spot in Illinois-- yes beautiful spaces exist in Illinois! 

Join us! 
Saturday, October 10
9AM - 4PM

We CAN retreat and still social distance!  At this deliciously chocolate-themed women’s retreat, participants will delight in the extravagant grace of God as they explore how it is evident in their own lives and in the lives of others.  Using chocolate as a metaphor (and sometimes to eat!), women will be drawn closer to Jesus by diving deeply into his miracles, and what they teach about grace. Sessions include Bible teaching, small group discussion, worship, personal reflection, Christian service, and more. Cost for one day includes breakfast, lunch, retreat materials, a little chocolate, and a beautiful view. You will leave in awe of our Creator and filled up with God's Word taught by wonderful God-fearing ladies.

The University offers complimentary coffee, tea, soda, & water to all guests. 

The retreat will be held at the stunning St. Mary's by the Lake in Mundelein, IL.  The campus features 3.5 miles of road that take you around St. Mary Lake which is forested and populated with beautiful wildlife. We promise you will fall in love with the location-- or your money back! 

The University is working with the health department and Judson leadership on ensuring that health and safety protocols are followed. The conference room will be set in a social distance fashion and masks will be required indoors. 

Meals will be packaged individually and ladies will be encouraged to find a cozy spot to eat their lunch. The indoor dining hall will not be open. 

We encourage small group discussions to happen outdoors.

Or grab your sister or a friend, brew some coffee and retreat together!
