Ladies, you do not want to miss out! Our FFC Women’s Retreat is scheduled for April 7 & 8, 2017. This is one retreat that you do not want to miss. We have invited Karen Alexander-Doyle to speak this year. Karen can truly speak to each woman in all stages of life as she is able to relate to each of us no matter what we’ve gone through, and continues to go through, as she has been through so much. You will be inspired! Karen has had the opportunity to share her faith across the country and around the world. She encourages women in all walks of life as she relates her belief that God’s plan is best and His word is truth. Karen was a Pastor’s wife for 28 years and after the death of her husband, God opened doors for her to share her journey. She is a conference speaker, Bible study teacher, seminar leader, women’s inspirational speaker, and has written several studies that are on CD’s. She is a Lifeway Ministry Multiplier and teaches across the country and world. Karen’s heart is to daily fall more in love with God and His Word. She delights in sharing and encouraging women to “seek Him with all your heart”.
