Bellagio Art & Faith Creative Retreat

October 6 - 13, 2018

Sheila Atchley & Laura McCollough



The Fall 2018 Art & Faith Creative Retreat will be held at the Grand Hotel Villa Serbelloni in the beautiful town of Bellagio, Italy.  This is where we will meet by the lakefront upon arrival,  enjoy our classes taught by inspiring teachers, spend time exploring this incredible village and find time to relax, be refreshed and leave renewed.

Each year we have done these retreats I am just in awe of how God is moving and knitting people together through these times together in Italy.  We are so thankful the Lord has blessed us with this opportunity to serve and love and come along side the women that come to our retreats! Our prayer is always that the people who the Lord is calling to be there COME, and that throughout the week they are able to draw closer to Him and hear and experience what God is wanting them to learn in this beautiful setting.  I know Sheila Atchley is excited to be a part of this week and we are so honored that she will is going to be a part of this week!
