Retreat is almost here!
Our first City Girl Women’s Retreat is right around the corner! And as expected, there are many questions that come with doing a retreat for the first time. This blog is created to inform you and help you feel confident going into retreat weekend so you can be as prepared practically and spiritually as possible to encounter God in a new and powerful way.
You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers!
1. Where is City Girl Retreat?
We will be staying at the Lied Lodge on Arbor Day Farm in Nebraska City, NE. It is a beautiful hotel with scenic views that will be the perfect backdrop for your getaway with God. Check out more details and pictures here!
2. What should I bring?

3. What is the schedule for the weekend?
Check-in begins at 5:30 pm on Thursday, November 3rd at the Lied Lodge (2700 Sylvan Road in Nebraska City, NE). You will need to find your own transportation to and from the retreat location. If you are needing help with transportation to Nebraska City, please email the Registration Team at email@example.com
Be sure to eat dinner prior to our opening session with Pastor Jessica Lenox at 7:00 pm Thursday night! Alongside her husband, Pastor Jessica leads a C3 Church in Atlanta GA. She flows in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, especially in the gift of prophecy. Pastor Jessica is a genuine, humble, and faithful follower of Jesus, and we are excited to have her with us Thursday night!
After the session concludes, there will be a snack bar for our fun, late night activities! On Friday morning, we have the opportunity to start the day with a Heavenly Flow stretching workout led by Kali Hall at 7:00 am (optional). Breakfast will be served, and then we will have our first morning session.
There will be multiple sessions throughout the retreat with meals provided in between. There will also be fun games during each mealtime! We will end our Friday night with a bonfire, s’mores, and worship. There will be another workout opportunity Saturday morning with Barre/Strength Flow led by Allie Mancuso at 7:00 am (optional). Our last session of the retreat will end around 9:30 am. Check out is Saturday, November 5th by 11:00 am. Be sure to check your email for more details coming soon!
4. What should I expect?
If you have never been on a God-centered retreat before, just know that it is a weekend you will never forget. In simple terms, it is like a “Jesus sleepover!” Late night talks, deep, authentic conversations, peaceful moments in His presence, joyous times, inside jokes, laughter, tears, and life transformation. But like anything in life, it will be what you make it to be. So come ready to receive, but also be ready to pour out. Be willing to let God use you to encourage and pray over your fellow sisters in Christ. Be vulnerable. Be real. Be your true self. Come as you are. Be open to however the Holy Spirit leads you. I promise you, you won’t regret it.
