THIS (Twenty-Four Hours In the Spirit)

Thank you to all who made the 2020 THIS such a success! We hope you can join us for the 20201 THIS Tasting the Fullness of Joy September 20th-24th. 

THIS – Twenty-Four Hours In the Spirit

THIS has always been something different. For the past four years (2017-2020), 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.

After reviewing your survey results, and in an effort to reach more women across the country, THIS 2021 will once again be online in a virtual format.

 

About THIS 2021 (inTentional Hours In The Spirit)

Starting at 11:00am (Central) on Monday, September 20th, and wrapping up at 2pm (Central) on Friday September 24th, THIS offers 4 virtual sessions of Bible Study, Worship, and Discussion, and a special gift while supplies last. Materials include workbooks, recipes, links to great playlists of music, plus the gift includes items specially selected to help you feel a little more joy!

Treat yourself to THIS virtual 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!

About this 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

  • Sessions will be recorded so that if you register but can’t attend, we’ll send you the link so you can watch it after the fact.
  • Participants who register before September 3rd at 12:00pm CST will receive a welcome gift with activity ideas, recipe ideas, and joyful gifts.
