The purpose of this congregational retreat is to :
  • join our hearts and minds as a congregation seeking God’s will
  • envision our church as God’s people of salt and light (Matthew 5:13-16)
  • provide input to expressing a guiding vision for our future
Here is what you can expect to experience:
  • Fun and entertainment as talented members delight us with music
  • Love and memories as we celebrate our “3 digit” members
  • A time of sharing your thoughts, hopes, and dreams with others in a small grouping
  • Reflect on the importance of discerning God’s dream for our church
This is what we invite you to do:
  • Join in all the parts of the retreat
  • practice the gift of listening
  • Be adventuresome in imagining God’s future and sharing
  • Have fun while taking part in a very important day!
