We invite you to join us for an all-church retreat day now rescheduled for September 2021. This retreat is a part of Pastor Stacey's sabbatical grant, provided by the Lilly Foundation. In partnership with Diana Shiflett (author of Spiritual Practices in Community), the day is designed for the whole congregation to enhance our own wonder of our intimate and infinite God and his activity in, through, and around us which parallels the focus of Stacey’s sabbatical theme.
The all-church retreat includes lunch and multiple opportunities to explore God's creation together, including a planetarium experience of the cosmos, an interactive retelling of the creation story, and worship in song. Watch for the new date and plan to gather with us for a great day together as we encounter the God of all creation with worship and wonder!
We believe that most of the activities of the day will be appropriate and engaging for students entering 2nd grade and older. You may choose to have your children participate in retreat activities alongside the church body. We ask that you remain alongside your children as their guide for the day if you choose to have them participate. If you have a younger child whom you feel could participate, you are welcome to include them as well. You know your children best, so we leave their participation up to your discretion. Otherwise, we will have separate programming for children 3rd grade and younger.
Lunch from McAlister's Deli is provided. Make sure to order meals for you and any children in your household.
