Bonita Park Camp and Conference Center.

200 Bonita Park Rd, HC 71 Box 1159, Capitan, NM 88316

Join us as we experience “Renewed Hope” and fellowship at the annual Real Life Church Women’s retreat in Ruidoso, NM.

Life can be so very different than we hoped or expected. Some events simply catch us off guard for a moment, while others shatter us completely. When this happens, we feel disappointed and disillusioned, and we may quietly start to wonder about the reality of God’s goodness. Lysa Terkeurst understands this deeply and we will be working through her study titled

“It’s Not Supposed to be This Way.” Together, as sisters in Christ, we can find unexpected strength when disappointments leave us doubting God’s plan in our lives. Be ready to enjoy a time of fellowship, worship and fun activities which will include opportunities to swim, hike, go zip lining, make s’mores and relax in the cool mountain air.
