The United Church of God Women’s Enrichment Weekends began in 1998 in Spokane, Washington, with Seattle soon following. From there, organized weekends began spreading throughout the country as women heard about or experienced their positive personal and spiritual benefits. As these weekends continue to expand into new areas, many questions are asked about how to get them started and how they should be organized. Although there is no single model that fits the needs of every area, we have developed some general standards and guidelines to provide a framework for expanding these opportunities in a unified manner.
These guidelines outline the basic purpose and intent of Women's Enrichment Weekends which is to create an environment in which women actively help one another grow to greater spiritual maturity through:
● Sharing valuable spiritual lessons learned with one another
● Discussing the practical implementation of godly principles
● Helping and encouraging one another through personal trials and struggles
● Developing stronger bonds of unity and friendship
These objectives are achieved through a combination of elements that generally include practical presentations or workshops, interactive discussions, uplifting music, and time for spiritual conversation, reflection and fellowship.
Please note that individuals who are planning to host a Women's Enrichment Weekend in their area are encouraged to download the guidelines and review them.
