Q & A
Who should attend this retreat?
This event is tailored specifically for women who are partners with StoryRunners or who want to get a closer look at our ministry as a potential ministry to support in the future.
What is the purpose of this retreat?
The purpose of this retreat for us to get to know our partners better, and for them to get to know StoryRunners and it’s team members better. We believe that a couple of days in each other’s company and in God’s Word through Bible stories will allow us to really get to know one another and experience how God uses stories to change lives.
What is the cost of this retreat?
This retreat is “our treat” and is no at cost to the ladies who love and support StoryRunners, as well as those who would like to know us better. You will only be responsible for your transportation to and from Savannah, whether you choose to fly in or drive to this wonderful destination. The itinerary is designed to have our meals together and finishing up with a story group, with the exception of a lunch on the run while out shopping if you choose to grab something on the way. In other words, be our guest!
What is a story group?
A story group is a small-group bible study where group members hear and discuss a story from the Bible. Each member learns the story so they can share it with others. The learning and application time is driven by group discussion, and the leader needs only to guide the discussion by asking questions. The beauty of the story group is its simplicity.
When should I arrive?
Please plan to arrive between 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM Check begins at 3:00 PM. The retreat will kick off Thursday afternoon with a Welcome Reception at 4:00 PM followed by a stroll down River Street. Please plan to arrive in time to be transported from the airport if you are flying in.
Will I need transportation once I arrive in Savannah?
Airport ground transportation will be provided for those flying into Savannah GA (Savannah (SAV) – Hilton Head International. One of the host, Pam or Beth will pick you up from the airport. Savannah is a historic walking city, so no transportation is needed. When necessary we will utilize the Trolley to get about.
Why should I take time out of my busy schedule to attend this retreat?
We have a great agenda planned especially with you in mind. (Link to the Agenda) From time to time we all need to retreat from the hustle and bustle of our complicated lives and connect with God and like-minded people. You may even forge some new friendships that will enhance your Christian journey, but ultimately you will learn to experience God’s Word in a way that will certainly enhance your walk with Him.
