Soul Care Fall Retreat
Saturday, November 17, 2018, 8:15 AM - 12:00 PM
Twice a year, we host what we call Soul Care Retreats. These are designed to help you slow down and find deep refreshment for your soul as you spend time in God's presence through fellowship, guided learning, solitude, reflection, and prayer. This event is free of charge (donation baskets will be available to offset the cost of breakfast). Bring your Bible, notebook, pen, and a hungry heart, and be sure to dress comfortably - you may want a sweater.
Pastors Jim & Debbie Ennis and Doug Whallon will facilitate the morning, and our guest speaker is William A. Barry, S.J.
Retreat Theme: God Wants Our Friendship
Do you believe that God wants to be your friend? In this retreat, we'll spend time looking at how God has related to people in the Scriptures, such as the creation account (Gen. 1:27-31), Abraham and Sarah (Gen. 18:17-25), Moses, and Jesus (Jn. 15:12-17). And if God does want our friendship, what does that mean for our prayer and our lives? Come explore these questions and spend time alone with God on November 17.
