Contemplative & Quiet Retreats 2020

In the busyness of life, it is important to get away to rest or find some time for intentional renewal. We believe that going on a retreat is an intentional way of taking time away from the demands of daily life to tune in to God as we carve out time and space for Him. Below are a variety of retreats designed especially for this purpose of encountering God individually and also communally with one another.

The Mindful Christian

In response to Romans 12:1-2, this short retreat aims to encourage retreatants to be mindful of the workings of the Holy Spirit in their inner being as they set aside time and space to soak in Scriptures.

Come and See (BEGINNER'S RETREAT) (In collaboration with DUMC)

This is an introductory retreat for those who are new to the contemplative tradition. In this story of how Jesus meets two of his first disciples, we see Him inviting them to 'Come and See' (John 1:38-39). The disciples responded and remained with him that day. Come away and be with Jesus this weekend as you hear his invitations for you as his disciple.
