Retreat 1
Feb. 6, 2016*
9 a.m. to  2:30 p.m.

Desire for God

If we are afraid to sift through our desires, we lose our most dynamic and power-filled source of energy. If we pay attention to our deepest desires, we will hear God’s voice through the rubble of it all.

Retreat 2

Each of us are made in the image and likeness of God. Using the Enneagram of Personality Styles, we will learn to return to our true selves while recognizing our false-self tendencies. This retreat will help you understand those moments when you feel “stuck,” and grow in grace as a fully devoted follower of Christ.

For the Sake of Others
One who wears a cross makes a statement of faith about the work of the cross in their own lives. How are you seeing the work of the cross in your life lately? The time you spend in retreat is, “for the glory of God, the abundance of your soul and for the sake of others.”  ~ Ruth Haley Barton

*If you commit to the two-year journey, your retreat begins Friday at 7 p.m.
