Greetings, my Sisters in Christ!

What a year it has been! With all that is happening around us in our families, communities, nation and the world, we need a WONDER encounter with God. We are all in need of time of renewal, restoration and revival in our minds, bodies and spirits. That’s why it is critical that we come together as Kingdom women for the 35th Annual “God Is a Wonder” Women’s Spiritual Retreat & Restoration Conference at Ebenezer African Methodist (AME) Church on Thursday, May 30-Saturday, June 1, 2019.

We have great expectation for the “God Is a Wonder” spiritual retreat and restoration conference that is held on the entire campus of Ebenezer A.M.E. in Fort Washington, MD. We have continued to work hard to maintain our registration fees, so that any sister who desires to can attend. Therefore, this year’s registration is only $135. In addition to the retreat, if you desire, we have also incorporated time for you to enjoy the various attractions at the National Harbor and Tanger Outlets, as well as the restaurants and shopping at the MGM Hotel property.

God has shown His amazing faithfulness through the years and we know in our hearts and spirits that this 35th year will be even greater. Each year, He has taken us higher and higher and deeper and deeper in the things of God and we are preparing for the abundance and overflow of the Holy Ghost.

My sisters—no matter where you are, whatever age you may be or what might be going on in your life—we believe that God has something ordained just for you at this year’s spiritual retreat. God is calling us to come together to hear from Him for direction and empowerment! Don’t miss this moment or let anything or anyone keep you from attending the 35th Annual “God Is a Wonder” Women’s Spiritual Retreat and Restoration Conference.

Again, we pray you will join us at Ebenezer May 30-June 1, 2019 as we experience a new level of God’s WONDER!
