THIS - Twenty-Four Hours In the Spirit

THIS has always been something different. For the past three years (2017-2019), THIS (Twenty Four Hours in the Spirit) was a chance for a group of women in and around Warren County to stop their regular routine for a concentrated chance to focus on God’s word, to refresh, and to enjoy fellowship with other women.

With social distancing guidelines and safety concerns around singing together, and in an effort to reach more women across the country, THIS 2020 is temporarily reinvented in an online, virtual format.

About THIS 2020 (inTentional Hours In The Spirit)

Starting at 11:30am (Central) on Tuesday, September 15th, and wrapping up at 12pm (Central) on Friday September 18th, 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 pampered and rested!

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

How many of us are feeling weary, burdened, heavy laden with the anxieties of the recent months and the pressures of the uncertainty of the future? How many of us churn and turn and spin and spiral and flit about in spurts of activity to care for those around us as best we can, to keep the anxiety at bay, to keep from being alone with our thoughts, to somehow solve it all ourselves? Jesus promised that He came so that we might have life – and have it abundantly, but when left to our own devices, we seem to have abundant stress, dishes, laundry, tasks, fears, concerns. How do we get out of that space? He instructs us in two simple words, “Be Still”. Join us for four simple sessions of worship, Bible study, and  discussion as we consider how to apply these two simple words to our own lives on a day-to-day basis.

  • Session 1 (11:30a-12:30p Tuesday 9/15) – Be Still and know that He is God. Psalm 46:10
  • Session 2 (10:30a-11:30a Wednesday 9/16) – Be Still and wait patiently for Him.  Psalm 37:7
  • Session 3 (4:00p-5:00p Thursday 9/17) – Be Still in His holy presence. Habakkuk 2:20
  • Session 4 (9:30a-10:30a Friday 9/18) – Be Still enough to hear His voice. Genesis 22:12

  • Sessions will be held via Zoom, with access to electronic but printable discussion guides to help you engage.
  • Each session is scheduled for 1 hour, but we’ll have some flexibility to continue discussion for those who choose to.
  • 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 4th at 12:00pm CST will receive a welcome gift with activity ideas, recipe ideas, and pamper-yourself gifts.
  • When you register yourself or your friends, sisters, daughters, mothers, aunts, or cousins, you’ll receive a confirmation asking for your shipping address to ensure you receive your welcome gifts!
