Eventbrite - 17th Annual Ladies Day at Arboretum

Need a day away?  To relax, have fun and nourish your soul?

Join us for a glorious day at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum to celebrate summer.  The Arboretum, named by USA Today as “one of the ten great places to smell the flowers,” is the perfect place for a day of fun, friendship and inspiration.

Enjoy eating lunch on outdoor patio with friends.  Stroll through the Arboretum’s beautiful gardens.

Along with the spectacular outdoor setting, you’ll be encouraged by inspiring messages to grow your faith, dynamic worship and powerful personal testimonies.

Gals of all ages love this popular annual event.  Bring a girlfriend, your mom, sister, coworkers and neighbors. It’s a fun day to share!

Our theme this year is “Bloom!”  Are you living life to the full?  Or is there something stirring in you yet to be discovered?  God is always calling us to more.  He longs to bring out the best in you—your unique personality, abilities and talents.  He wants to see you bloom!

Our featured speaker, Kristi Graner, Executive Director of Dare to Believe Ministry, will inspire you to do that.  Kristi is an internationally recognized speaker and workshop facilitator.  Her passion is equipping people to discover their spiritual gifts, leadership skills and life purpose. 

We are thrilled to welcome back Arboretum favorites, Sara RennerTonia Hughes, and Billy Steele to lead worship.  Sara, Tonia and Billy are extraordinary musicians. You’ll love their unique blend of jazz, soul and Gospel music. 

Betsy LeePresident of Prayer Ventures, will host the event.  “This is going to be an extraordinary day,” she says.  “The Arboretum is at its best in June.  I love being there with 300 of my closest friends!”
