Be still, and know that I am God.
Psalm 46:10a

The Women’s Ministry at PBC believes that with God all things are possible. We want to trust God because He tells us He ALWAYS leads us in triumph in Christ! We know life can be difficult but we believe that God still has the answers to our problems. And we want to encourage women to live off the love of Jesus at every turn their lives take them.

As we give everything to the Lord in prayer, He can and does help us lift our eyes off of our circumstances and onto Him, who is actively working on our behalf. We believe that those who consistently spend time with God in prayer and in the reading of His Word are blessed. They will grow deep roots of faith to help weather the storms of life and emerge fruitful.

Women's Retreat

Oct 22-24

Claggett Center – Adamstown, MD

To all ladies, high-school age and older: please join us for the PBC Women’s Fall retreat! Our theme is “R & R” – not just for “Rest & Relaxation,” but also “Refining and Restoring.” We will look at how God uses trials to conform us to the image of Christ, and discover more about the heart of God who constantly seeks us, and takes joy in restoring us! As it says in 1 Peter 5:10, “And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.”

Our speaker will be Chelsea Wortman, former PBC member who served here faithfully with her husband for many years before moving their family to North Carolina. We will be going to the Claggett Center in Adamstown, MD (near Frederick), and staying in their Cottages.

The cost of the retreat is $220 per person, which covers two nights lodging (double-occupancy rooms), five meals, and our own private meeting room, with kitchenette. 

Click to register here or print the retreat brochure/registration form. Brochures will be available in the foyer.

Checks should be made payable to Potomac Baptist Church, memo Women’s Retreat. Mail/drop off at Potomac Baptist Church, 20747 Lowes Island Blvd. Sterling, VA 20165.
