Spring Retreat

The theme of the weekend retreat is: "Becoming" the scripture is Psalm 139, for you are "Fearfully and wonderfully Made".  The retreat is for young adults aged 18-25.

Our goals for the weekend are the following: rest, intentional community building across ministries, intentional worship, joy filled weekend, service and hospitality.

There will be different types of worship including Supper church and some contemplative styles.

Workshops include:

  • The Spiritual Practice of Baking Bread: Gluten Free and Regular Breads
  • Faith and Finance
  • Beauty and Body Image
  • Exploring Art
  • Quidditch

There will be a Talent Show, so invite folks to bring their talents and interpretive dances.  

We will be sleeping in, playing, singing, taking part in a service project and enjoying one another!

The retreat will begin at 7pm on Friday and conclude before lunch on Sunday. 

There will not be child care. Registration and coordinating support for the retreat is coming from the Office of Connectional Ministries.

Retreat Cost
Regular registration for the Spring Retreat is $90. This includes two nights of lodging, four meals (3 on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday) and snacks. Scholarships are also available (details below) to help to keep cost from being a prohibitive factor.
