Overview

Delight in God's extravagant grace with this chocolate-themed retreat!

The Café Chocolat women’s retreat kit is a Bible-based retreat program designed to help women grow in their relationship with God and develop lasting friendships with each other. At this deliciously chocolate-themed women’s retreat, participants will delight in the extravagant grace of God as they explore how it is evident in their own lives and in the lives of others.

Using chocolate as a metaphor (and sometimes to eat!), women will be drawn closer to Jesus by diving deeply into his miracles, and what they teach about grace. The sessions in this newly revised edition include fresh Bible stories, small group discussion, worship, personal reflection, Christian service, and more.

Women will reflect on God’s extravagant grace...

  • ...through mistakes and blunders (and laughter!)
  • ...for others
  • ...in the midst of disappointment
  • ...with the ultimate gift of Jesus’ resurrection

How it Works

Sessions

Every women’s retreat session works together to create a relaxing and fun, faith-filled experience for your retreat guests. Women sit in small groups of four throughout the retreat, which inspires a nonthreatening environment to share honestly with one another and develop lasting Christian friendships.
