Overflow Women's Retreat: Sept. 9 - 11, 2022

We welcome you this September to Overflow, a women's retreat designed to provide women with a space to rest, renew, and engage in fellowship with other women. Every woman will come to this retreat seeking renewal in her own way. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we seek to affirm, connect, and lift up women in the church the best way we know how: fellowship.

DEVOTIONAL LEADER: Rev. Kelley Jepsen (she/her)

Born and raised in Minnesota, Kelley Jepsen has been living as a Hoosier for the last four years. Kelley graduated from the University of Minnesota Carlson School of Management with a B.S. in Business. She worked in various supply chain related fields in the Minneapolis area prior to attending Luther Seminary for her Masters of Divinity. In July of 2018, she was ordained as a Minister of Word and Sacrament in the Presbyterian Church (USA).

Kelley served as a Lake Fellow at Second Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis before beginning her current role as a Transitional Associate Pastor at First Presbyterian Church in Bloomington, IN two years ago. At FPC, her main responsibilities are over all-ages Christian Education, Mission & Outreach, Deacons, and the Racial Justice Task Force. In her free time, Kelley enjoys cooking, planning trips, reading memoirs, and staying connected with family and friends.

With the last bit of flour and few drops of oil, the widow at Zarepheth (1 Kings 17) was determined to make a final meal for her and her son to enjoy. Suddenly in walks this man of God, asking her for the hospitality of a small meal. “Don’t you understand,” she pleads, “this is all we have left.” He promises her that in exchange for her hospitality God would ensure her jars of oil and flour would never go empty. In this trusting of God, in the seemingly ordinary act of baking bread, a miracle was granted.

Through the lens of baking bread, we will explore the wonderful things God can do with the seemingly ordinary parts of our lives. What is our “mise en place?” What do we knead? How is God shaping us and where do we look for proof? Join us for Rise. A time set apart for women to explore their faith and nourish their souls.
