2020 Spring Women’s Retreat

April 24-26, 2020


The Pottery Lady


“The Road to Emmaus”

Carol Wollaver spins this age old story as she spins her potter’s wheel, transporting us back in time; not only to that dusty seven mile walk to Emmaus but on a journey through the Old Testament prophecies that pointed to the Messiah to come. Fascinating to watch, all of Carole’s messages are dramatically presented from the potter’s wheel right before you. Friday night, Carole will share “The Master’s Pieces”, her original presentation, which is the entire story of the Potter and the Clay, told from the potter’s perspective; from beginning to end, from pit to praise, of how God molds and shapes our lives. Saturday will move us to “The Road to Emmaus” which is Carol’s newest presentation.

Carole’s teachings are drawn from her own time in God’s Word and her experience of being clay in the gentle hands of the Father, The Master Potter, experiencing the molding on the wheel, the fire of the kiln, and the joy of being His. Carole’s unique style of story telling, mixed with her skill at the potter’s wheel bring scripture to life in a very visual way.



Tapestry is an all female worship band whose joy and privilege is to lead and engage others in music and worship that speaks to the heart. Each member is a unique and divinely appointed thread with a strong passion for leading worship, and understands the power and connection that happens when people come together to corporately worship God.

At retreat, we come, we laugh, we pray… we grow and then we reconnect next year!

I met my best friend at Women’s Retreat! The people just wrap their arms around you …. so friendly!

This is a girl bonding time… a growing close time… it’s a place where we can grow close as sisters in Christ!
