Living With Purpose Together is a different kind of Christian women’s event
A night away at a beautiful Resort
Organized for women to attend together
Relevant and challenging spiritual conversations
Unstructured time to relax and refresh

Sometimes in the crazy pace of daily life we forget what it means to live with God’s kingdom in mind. We go through the motions of our Christian faith, but we wonder if God might have something more in store. At the same time, we also may isolate ourselves from Christian community, especially with other like-minded women. Living With Purpose Together offers women a space to “getaway” with their community of friends in order to slow down, seek God, and support one another.

While women do no have to attend with friends, the “getaway” will be organized so that women who are already friends (or hope to develop a friendship) will spend the “getaway” together and then hopefully continue that community after the weekend is over. The hope is that women will return home recharged and ready to engage those around them with Christ’s love, surrounded by a few women who can encourage them.

Who: Any woman from DEC is invited to participate and invite a friend (or a few friends!) even if they do not attend DEC. Rooms can fit from 2 to 4 people so feel free to invite women to fill up a room or two! We only ask that you and your friends do not bring any babies/children even if they are nursing.

When: Friday, November 15 at 7PM-Saturday, November 16 at 5PM



Where: The Nonantum Resort, 95 Ocean Ave, Kennebunkport, ME 04046

Cost: There are two costs associated with the “getaway”. The first is the cost of reserving a room at the Nonantum and the second is the cost of attending (see below for more specifics).
