Allow yourself to be welcomed into a sacred space.
Retreat, Reflect, Renew retreats are a welcoming and sacred space designed to give a half-day of quiet, prayer, reflection and sharing to help renew and nourish the soul. This is your time to let your shoulders relax and your mind quiet down from all the chatter of the world. The agenda includes a scripture-inspired personal reflection time, small group sharing (you only share what you feel comfortable sharing), prayer and inspirational music. Retreat, Reflect, Renew retreats are welcoming. Both those who have never gone to a retreat and those who frequently attend them have found the environment to be comfortable, non-judgmental and a safe place to reflect and renew.
Experience Retreat, Reflect, Renew come to life.
The retreats are based on the Retreat, Reflect, Renew process of slowing down, embracing the journey within to grow deeper in your relationship with God, and then letting go and placing your trust in God's hands. Each retreat takes a concept or scripture verse from the journal and brings it to life with music, prayer, personal reflection time and sharing. It is not necessary to have the journal or to have read the journal to enjoy the retreat. The retreats are designed with the expectation that participants do not have the journal, but those that have read it or are in the middle of reading it will appreciate the deeper experience the retreats offer to the Retreat, Reflect, Renew journey.
