The If:Gathering Women’s Conference is such a unique experience. The first conference was in Austin, TX in 2014. It started with a hand full of women passionate about discipleship. They felt led by God to “disciple a generation”. Generation is defined by women alive on planet earth right now…young and old. They gathered together for this conference and it has grown to be webcast to almost 1,000,000 people worldwide in 2017.
Here at Northshore, we have gathered in years’ past in homes around the Eastside, to watch the webcast. This year we will be gathering all together at church, to be able to experience IF as one group. We will enjoy time together in table groups, eating together, watching the conference, and most importantly–discussing the deep places that God is calling us to. The question is “IF God is real in your life, then what? How shall we live?” It is our desire to continually be asking ourselves that question, so we can focus on how God has made us and what He is calling us to do to live out His mission here on earth.
We have some new, exciting things planned such as a ministry fair, as well as IF: Dinner After, for you to gather with friends to debrief what you learned and heard at IF.
We would love you to join us as we gather! This retreat conference will be hosted on Friday, March 9 and Saturday, March 10, 2018. Registration here, when we open (Jan 9, 2018). Join us!!

We invite you to take a break from the daily pace of life. Come rest and be refreshed as we create a space to be in God’s presence. Make it a date with God!
Interlude Retreat, our fall retreat, is on Saturday, November 18 and Sunday, November 19, 2017 at Rainbow Lodge in North Bend. We will offer worship and gathering times as well as space to be alone with God.

Women’s Retreat is a long held Northshore tradition that we desire to continue in years to come.
It is currently on hold due to the need to find a camp a little closer to home. We are on the wait list at Camp Cedar Springs, in Sumas…stay tuned!
And, we NEED YOU!! We have the opportunity for a woman who is passionate about coordinating this ministry to renew excitement around this retreat experience. This is typically a 2 night-3ish day retreat getaway with the intent to bind women together, come closer to Jesus, and leave feeling refreshed. Will you join us?
If so, please email Lauren Neal for more information or to begin a conversation around retreat leadership.
