Ladies Retreat, October 12-13, 2012

Sponsored by the Retreat Operations Committee of the Presbyteries of Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Central Pennsylvania, and Ohio of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church

Theme:

“For truly, I say to you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ will by no means lose his reward.” ~ Mark 9:41

The ministry of Jesus Christ continues though Word and Deed. Ministering to the stranger, the overlooked attender or fellow member of the church family is not as threatening or complicated as it sometimes seems. Join us as we search the Scriptures and discover new ways, through exercising hospitality, to be Christ’s agents in the building of His kingdom. Bring your favorite recipes and strategies and let’s brain- storm in the context of love, laughter and uplifting fellowship as sisters in Christ surrounded by the Creator’s beauty at the Machen Retreat Center.

Speaker: Meredith Proctor

Meredith Proctor Bio

I was raised an only child in a non-Christian home and came to the Lord at age 22.  I was welcomed into the loving arms of brothers and sisters of a Presbyterian church.  There I grew in the faith and was blessed with many opportunities to grow and serve.  Nineteen years ago, in the early 90’s, I met my husband, Phil Proctor, who asked me to marry him and to go to the mission field.  The Lord gave us the privilege to serve Him in a foreign capacity in Uganda, East Africa along with our four beautiful children, for eight years.  In June of 2011, the Lord gave us a new opportunity to serve in Sterling, Virginia.   In our new mission field, we have been blessed to see the Body of Christ grow and to be refreshed in the knowledge that hospitality  (ministering to the stranger, overlooked attender or fellow member of the church family) is the same regardless of whether you’re in Uganda, America or anywhere else.  One of the most powerful ways that Christ continues to grow His church is by giving a cup of cold water in His name.
