Spiritual Growth Retreat
What We Need Is Here: Practicing the Heart of Christian Spirituality
March 19th 6:30-9:00 PM March 20th 8:45-11:00 AM Via ZOOM
Are you looking for an ever-deepening relationship with God?
Are you finding challenges to growing spiritually?
Plan to attend and let God be your Teacher in discovering the “givens” which will demonstrate how Jesus is enough. It offers just what you need to flourish in your life with God! Your days will include laughter, sharing, presentations, reflection, and worship. Take this time to retreat and find exactly what you need to draw nearer to God.
The book for required reading is: What We Need is Here: Practicing the Heart of Christian Spirituality, by L. Roger Owens. It is available for purchase from Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
