Anglican Women’s Retreat

Join us for the Anglican Women’s Retreat this October 20-22, 2023.

Come away, beloved daughters, and rediscover your joy. 

Rediscover your Joy, Anglican Women's Retreat 2023

The Anglican Women of the ADOSC will hold their fall women’s retreat October 20-22, 2023 at Epworth by the Sea. Sherry Schumann will be our speaker. “Rediscover your Joy” is this year’s theme and we pray that this retreat will be an opportunity for women to do just that.

About our Speaker

A gifted story-teller and speaker, Sherry serves as the president of Christian Grandparenting Network. While she spends much of her time working with grandparents, she loves whenever the LORD affords her opportunities to study God’s Word with women of all ages.

She has written two books, Prayers that Stir the Hearts of Grandparents and The Christmas Bracelet. Her latest book, The Grand Expedition: A Practical Guide to Praying for Your Grandchildren, will be available in summer, 2023.

Sherry’s life in rural South Carolina is simple and beautiful. She has been married to her soul mate for four decades. They are blessed with three grown sons, three daughters-in-law and seven adorable grandchildren. Sherry’s heart rejoices whenever their home echoes with the sounds of their children’s (daughters-in-law, included) and grandchildren’s voices.

Learn more about Sherry here.

Registration closed September 18. Limited scholarships are available.

Additional information will be made available as soon as it is released. If you have questions, contact the Anglican Women’s President, Sunny Walker.
