SMASH48 Women's Retreat 2017



A retreat for ladies only. A place of safety, invitation, and challenge. This year our theme is Freedom. What is the true freedom that Jesus gives and how do we live in it? Four sessions with fun, real, and honest speakers and an awesome worship band that will light up the stage with incredible music all weekend!  The party is on!  


You pick. Utilize your free time to attend a workshop, or find a quiet place and a cup of tea to read and just be still without the pull of kids and the demands of work and home.


Try a zipline, jump on a horse, or shoot your girlfriends (with a paintball of course). You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll leave filled up and encouraged by the Holy Spirit. Smash48 is like no retreat you've ever known - you will experience God in a new way. 

We know the responsibilities women have to take care of; kids, husbands, and families. We know the pressure that comes from work. We have seen the exhaustion that settles on our girlfriends as their constant companion. 

We need a place to laugh, to be free!

We need a weekend to let God be God and reach the places that lay hidden in our hearts. We need to be refreshed. We need the living waters Jesus promises.  We need Smash48. A weekend to take the makeup off, wear our baggy sweats, hold hands and fall on our knees.
