“How God Manifests through YOU!”

Come away from it all, before the holidays start, and determine to navigate them with peace in your soul this year.  In Advent, we reflect on the mystery of incarnation – how God dared to come down to us and take the form of flesh, as a vulnerable, living, breathing human being.  Perhaps even more mystifying is how God chooses to live, move, and manifest through YOU, through your unique gifts, strengths, and your willingness to surrender.    Join the wonder-team of Carol Pitz, Leah Plath, and Pastor Christine as they invite you to see how God desire to live in your and be made manifest through you, using your strengths, personality type, and through your desire to surrender to the Holy Spirit’s guidance.   Don’t More information coming!  Please contact Pastor Christine for details, or register on-line under “Retreats.”

Faith Marriage Retreat:

Crossing the Divide and Growing Together-Exploring Ourselves and Our Relationships through the Enneagram

Individuals and couples and encouraged to join us for our co-ed Winter Marriage Retreat exploring an ancient “map” known as the Enneagram.  The Enneagram is a helpful map, leading us through and beyond our personality types into a deeper knowing that is grounded and inspired. It guides us beneath the surface of our lives, in ways that are challenging and freeing. It’s 9 pathways to living more easily and authentically in the world. Often framed as a “personality test,” the Enneagram actually invites us out of our boxes rather than putting us into a box. Research suggests that 80% of us function primarily out of a reactive mindset. No wonder we struggle in relationships! Through presentations, and personal and couple reflection times, presenter and spiritual director, Scott McRae, we will seek to unlock some of the life-long patterns that drive us and others a bit crazy.  The goal of this retreat is to move closer to ourselves, our partner, and our God so that we feel more alive and free in our lives and relationships. Some issues we will explore:

  • The 9 types of reactivity, and the mental and emotional patterns that keep us stuck
  • The 9 pathways that lead us out of reactivity and into our best selves
  • The ancient spirituality of the Enneagram, and its modern psychological wisdom
  • What the shadow side of our personality is, and why it wreaks havoc in our marriages
  • Practices for the 9 types that lead to relational intimacy and spiritual growth
