Get these free scripture encouragement cards for retreat participants!
Scripture encouragement cards add an extra personal touch for the ladies at any retreat. For the Loving Christ overnight retreats, ladies stay in nice cabins with heat/air, semi-private sleeping areas (with Serta mattresses), and private bathrooms (did you like the shameless plug for our retreats and how comfortable you will be?). Our activities take place in a separate area of the camp, so during one of the evening events either Brooke and I or someone we’ve recruited to help will sneak to the cabins and place an encouragement card on each ladies’ pillow. One weekend, we even had youth from my local church’s youth group help us out.
Our purpose is to share Christ’s love with each individual, and a simple note left on a pillow makes a bigger difference than you might imagine. After an active day of worship, fellowship, and activities, it’s nice to head to bed and find a note of encouragement waiting.
Do you hold one day retreats only? No problem! We’ve used these same cards at each place setting when the ladies sit at tables and also in goodie bags that we make up for all participants. Scripture cards can be shared in many ways.
No matter what type of retreat, these encouragement cards will fit right in.
We like to print ours on bright card stock in all different colors and then use decorative edge scissors to cut them out. Then, we use two-sided tape to stick an Andes Creme de Menthe right underneath the message.
I know it sounds simple, but you would not believe the smiles we see when the ladies find their cards. It’s a happy time!
