THIS (Twenty-Four Hours In the Spirit)

Thank you to all who made the 2021 THIS such a success! We hope you can join us for the 2022 THIS God Meets Us Where We Are September 16th-17th. 

THIS – Twenty-Four Hours In the Spirit

THIS has always been something different. For the past five years (2017-2021), THIS (Twenty Four Hours in the Spirit) was a chance for a group of women in and around Warren County (and beyond) to stop their regular routine for a concentrated chance to focus on God’s word, to refresh, and to enjoy fellowship with other women.

This year we will be back in person! 

 

About THIS 2022 (Twenty-Four Hours In The Spirit)

Starting at 4:15pm (Central) on Friday, September 16th, and wrapping up at 12:15pm (Central) on Saturday, September 17th, THIS is a volunteer-driven, God-focused, mid-week retreat for women. While the event is not affiliated with or sponsored from a single church or denomination, members of multiple churches have gathered together to sponsor and lead this event as a ministry to those in our community. The program includes Dinner on the first day, a one-night stay in a hotel in Indianola, Breakfast and a Lunch coupon on the second day, four sessions of worship and message, free time, optional activities, and ways to pause, refresh, and reflect on the greatness of God. The message comes from the Scripture. The songs include a blend of traditional hymns, praise songs, and contemporary Christian songs. 

Treat yourself to THIS retreat, built to work around even the busiest of schedules, and give it as a gift to other women in your life you know would appreciate it.

If you’re ready to carve off time for a few inTentional hours to refresh and reconnect with God and like-minded women, sign up now!

  • When: Starts Friday, September 16th at 4:15pm Central.
  • Where: Indianola, Iowa
  • Cost: $99 per person
  • Registration: Check back for more details!

 

 

About last year’s theme

After a year of slowing down and being still, many of us have experienced the busyness of what life used to be. Ushering kids and ourselves around to ball games, practices, music events, church camps, all the vacations and trips we weren’t able to take, and more, all packed into one summer. That can be overwhelming! But there is also an abundance of joy!

 

“Because of you, I know the path of life,
as I taste the fullness of joy in your presence.”

Psalm 16:11.

Join us for THIS 2021 to explore the abundant joy He gives us. In session one, Making Joy a Continual Feast, we’ll focus on the reminder to rejoice always, in prayer and supplication, giving thanks to God. In session two, Finding Joy in Times of Trials, we’ll explore what joy might look like during trials, how to seek it, and how to find it. In session three, Learning to Ask for Joy, we’ll explore ways to ask for joy with the faith and assurance that we will receive as we ask. In session four, Expressing Joy Beyond Expression, we’ll talk about the fact that even though Peter said that the joy was indescribable, we are indeed to describe it so that others may see Him and know Him and share in the joy.

 

  • Session 1 (11:00a-12:00p Monday 9/20) – Making Joy a Continual Feast. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
  • Session 2 (6:30p-7:30p Tuesday 9/21) – Finding Joy in Trials. James 1:2-3
  • Session 3 (9:00a-10:00a Thursday 9/23) – Learning to Ask for Joy. John 15:24
  • Session 4 (2:00p-3:00p Friday 9/24) – Expressing Joy Beyond Expression. 1 Peter 1:8-9

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

2021’s virtual conference costs $20.

Where does it take place?

2021’s conference will be virtual again to allow more participation. So, wherever you have internet!

How do the accommodations work?

This year (2021), since the conference is virtual, we won’t have any accommodations. You’ll get to enjoy the comfort of your own bed. 

How can I help?

This year (2021), we’re looking for monetary or in-kind donations, since we’re a virtual retreat. You can make a monetary donation here or contact us to learn more about in-kind donations.

Is there a longer term picture?

We are praying THIS will become two things:

  • An annual event for women in and around Warren County
  • A “portable” / “reproducible” package that can allow a 24-hour women’s retreat in other towns and cities across the US.
