2019 Fall Women’s Retreat
Wholehearted Faith: “How do we feed our SOULS to stay ENGAGED?”
Wholehearted Faith provides women the opportunity to hit pause and to reflect on what nourishes their own souls
in Christ. Busyness, demands, endless “to-do” lists often crowd out time for us to refresh and rejuvenate. Yet, we develop resiliency when we are engaged in things that feed our souls. How can we get those activities from the bottom of the list to a more life-giving integrated place? Using Dr. Brene Brown’s research found in The Gifts of Imperfection, additional research on resiliency, Scripture, reflection and small group sharing, women will leave empowered to fill their own tanks so they can bless others.
 
Join Rev. Sarah Ciavarri, who is an ELCA Lutheran Pastor, Daring Way Faciliator, and Professional Certified Coach as she helps us press “pause” on the busyness, to-do lists, and demands that can overwhelm and drain us. This will be a time to step away to reflect, rejuvenate and then return to our lives filled and engaged.

2020 Marriage Retreat
Have you ever wished your spouse came with an instruction manual?  Are you interested in learning ways to more effectively move past the sticking points in your marriage?  Please come join us for the winter marriage retreat, Better Together: Exploring Relationship Dynamics with the Enneagram. Areas of emphasis will include:
  • A review of each of the nine character structures and self-observation.
  • Typical relationship challenges between the three intelligence centers:  Head, Heart, and Gut.
  • Understanding how to recognize the characteristics of our own personalities that cause the sticking points in our     relationships.
Scott McRae of the Sojourners Spiritual Direction Program will teach us tactical ways to grow in communication and understanding with our spouses. The subject matter will be meaningful and relevant if you are first hearing about enneagram or build upon the information if you attended last year. We hope to see you there!
