Women's Summit 2024

Each year, Fellowship schedules prayer summits at a local Christian camp. The summits provide participants opportunities to spend extended times of prayer with each other without the normal distractions that come with our busy lives. A Prayer Summit is a gathering of Christians who spend several days seeking the Lord and His agenda for their individual lives, families, church, and community.
When: Thursday, February 29th-Saturday, March 2nd
Where: Hidden Acres Christian Center, 3837 Union Avenue, Dayton, IA
Cost: $150/person, Fee includes: Lodging, 6 meals, & all summit sessions & materials.  

Registration Opens January 12th & Closes February 25th 
This is a time of refreshment, encouragement, edification and purification, perfect for every heart longing to know God more intimately. The agenda will be established by Christ as we worship, glorify, and enjoy Him through singing, Scripture reading, and prayer. We look forward to this time of sharing, praising, glorifying and experiencing the joy of the Lord. We hope you can join us for this special time together.
