Greetings My Dear Sisters,

I pray all is well with you and your families as we navigate these challenging and unexpected times. Truly, our lives have been deeply impacted by the rapidly changing situation in our nation and in our world.

Based upon the current realities and after much prayer, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 God is a Wonder Spiritual Retreat & Restoration Conference at Ebenezer AME Church. While our heart is heavy about this change, we are excited that we will host the conference next year on May 27-29, 2021!

Please be mindful of a few important details. If you have registered, you will receive a full refund over the next couple of months. Additionally, if you have already reserved a hotel room, we strongly recommend that you cancel your reservation or confirm the cancellation with them as soon as possible. There are associated deadlines with each hotel, so we encourage you to reach out immediately.

For 35 years, God has used this gathering as an opportunity for women to be empowered and we looked forward to Him showing up again next year. In the meantime, we are also exploring options to host a one-day virtual gathering this summer. We’ll be sharing more details in the coming months.

While we are experiencing turbulent times, we know that God is still in control. We will continue to trust Him and stand firm on His Word that He is our “refuge and strength and an ever-present help in times of trouble.”

Thank you for your support of the God is a Wonder Spiritual Retreat & Restoration Conference year after year. While we will miss seeing you, we hope that you will mark your calendar to join us May 27-29, 2021! You can make your hotel reservations as early as December.

We will keep you and your families in our prayers. May God continue to bless and keep you!

In Christ’s Service,

Love you and God bless,
Pastor Jo Ann Browning
