A retreat is an opportunity to pivot our lives through a healthy interruption of our routine. Getting out of our daily patterns and familiar surroundings it is a time we can find some rest, invest in new relationships and enjoy refreshment for our lives. My hope for this time is that we might open our minds, hearts and lives to how God might be prompting and directing us in our spiritual passage. May this be a time for us to become fully human; refreshed and renewed that we might bring greater glory to God. Every year we invite a guest speaker to join us. This year, we are welcoming Doug Kegarise.
Is your faith strong enough to stand up to the pressures that life throws at you? Are you able to stand firm in the face of trials and temptations? Doug Kegarise is (SOOOOOOOO) excited to be returning to the W54 Youth Winter Retreat this February to talk about building a Resilient Faith. Spend a weekend investing in your relationship with Jesus and learning what God’s Word teaches us about strengthening our spiritual core.
