Join us August 24-26 for a weekend of recharging yourself, your faith, and your connection to community.
Our Annual Congregational Retreat from August 4-6 is about spending time in community and in nature -- and it's amazing to see how these two things recharge people to live out their faith and take on life in the city. New friendships are made. Our sense of community is deepened. And everyone leaves feeling re-centered and rejuvenated.
Make new friends, deepen relationships, and strengthen community.
You really get to know people at this retreat.
And you get to feel more connected to this faith community. These relationships don't just make for a fun weekend. They enrich every Sunday at Advent thereafter, and open up new doors for ongoing friendships, exploring your faith, and getting involved.
