2025 OPC Women’s Retreat – SAVE THE DATE!

APRIL 4 – 6 in Idyllwild, California

Lisa Howard will be speaking on the topic of Battling the Joy-Stealers.

Lisa is a retired nurse and a member of Harvest OPC in San Marcos, CA, where she serves as a Sunday school teacher and Women’s Bible study leader.  She has been an OPC Women’s Retreat participant for many years and was the MC for over 10 years.  Her passion is being a life-long student of God’s Word, with the goal of always learning and growing in Gospel joy.

If our chief end is to “glorify God and to enJOY Him forever,” why do we sometimes find ourselves relinquishing our joy so easily?  Lisa is going to help us to identify four main categories of “joy-stealers,” and together we will discover four powerful weapons with which we can do battle with each corresponding joy-stealer.  These weapons will be found in the four chapters that make up the book of Philippians, which has been called The Epistle of Joy.
