Women’s Retreat

2023 Women’s Retreats

Like a crisp autumn morning, our Fall Women’s Retreat is refreshing and renewing offering incredible opportunities for connection, instruction, worship and fun.

Treat yourself to this wonderful experience in our quiet corner of West Michigan on Long Lake, during one of the most beautiful times of the year. Come alone or register with a group – either way you’ll be loved and served while you’re here.

Get creative and active with a wide variety of crafts and activities  available throughout the retreat.   Choose your own adventure – hike, zipline, conquer the Escape Room, shoot guns or even paddle out into Long Lake in a kayak or canoe.  Get your creative juices flowing by  attending one of our craft times or practicing for our annual Lip Sync Battle.  Relaxation is waiting for you – enjoy a cup of coffee around the fire overlooking the lake, sign up for a massage or take a nap. Everything is optional, but it’s all the best fun!

Last Year’s Speaker – Shannon Popkin

I’m from West Michigan. I’m a wife and mom, and an author, speaker, and Bible teacher. I’m happy to be sharing life with Ken, who—after 25 years, still makes me laugh  every day. Together we have the joy of watching our three kids/young adults become the amazing people God created them to be. We also have two adorable Shih Tzu’s, who—unlike the kids, have no plans of moving out.

My family loves to open our front door to others, and we are deeply invested in Ada Bible Church. We are so thankful to be part of a ministry where the Bible is central and people are welcome.

As an author and speaker, I love to combine my gifts for humor and storytelling with my passion for Jesus and the truth of God’s Word. I speak for ladies’ events, retreats, and moms groups. My latest book is Comparison Girlpublished by Kregel (visit ComparisonGirl.com to learn more). I’ve had the privilege of being featured on FamilyLife Today, Revive Our HeartsProverbs 31, and other ministries. I’ve also had the joy contributing as a blogger at Revive Our Hearts for many years.


When: October 6th – 8th, 2023
Cost: $65

Enjoy amazing food, fun adventures, chapels and workshop sessions featuring a variety of speakers and topics including:  Prayer, Studying the Bible, and the Gospel.
