Spring Gathering

Registrations for our Gathering in September are now open. This will be on the 16th – 17th September and held at Hope Presbyterian in West Melton. Joining us for the weekend will be Geoff New from KCML. Geoff will be taking us through a workshop on “The Spirituality of Remembrance” as a part of our Gathering.

A Spirituality of Remembrance

Through reading Scripture, reflection, prayer, silence, and talking with each other – we will survey our personal spiritual journey.

Our time together will be more of a retreat than a workshop and, as such, our time will not be content–heavy. Instead, our time will rely on you responding to Scripture and allowing the Spirit to guide your memory as you recall your spiritual journey. Our time will be undergirded with a spirit of thanksgiving. We will recall the people, events, and revelations which have led us to this point in time.

We will recall God.

I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.
2 Timothy 1:5
