Young Adults' Retreat

September 28-29, 2018

The purpose of the Christian journey is to be with Jesus, to learn from Jesus, and to become like Jesus. During this retreat you will look at two ways of being: the false self and the true self. Together, we will travel through Colossians to discover how to live from a place of true transformation.

What You Can Expect

Expect to be with Jesus (in silence, individual prayer, corporate prayer, journaling). Expect to learn from Jesus (through the sessions, through reading the word, through listening to the Holy Spirit). Expect to become more like Jesus. You can expect to take away principles and practices that will help you experience a real faith capable of producing deep transformation in your life. Our day will be ordered around the Daily Office, which means we will gather to pray or study every three hours. In between gathered times of prayer and study you will have the option of further prayer and study, sharing life with others, or taking a nap.
