At our best, we become Sabbath for one another
Retreats are a kind of Sabbath — a time apart: apart from our everyday lives, perhaps apart from the city, sometimes apart from the people with whom we generally spend our days, maybe apart from what we are used to, apart from noise, apart from loneliness, apart from the news, from stress, from obligations, apart from what we know. They are also a time of coming together — to learn, to play, to grow, to listen, to remember, to feel, laugh, engage our spiritual selves intentionally, to embrace the Mystery. Jesus spent a good deal of time apart – by himself and with his friends. As followers of the Way of Jesus, we do the same.
With a variety of retreats and opportunities to choose from, we welcome all ages and walks of life to join us. We have lifestage-targeted retreats, as well as topical retreats around issues such as immigration justice and prayer. Each retreat is a unique experience to go deeper with our relationships, our faith, and our community.
