We are Building to SERVE Christ, by building up the body of Christ, as friends and followers of Jesus. Our annual retreats truly enrich both the individuals participating, and our greater community.￼￼ Jesus modeled this ‘time apart’ for us, and Christian tradition has always understood retreat to be an important part of spiritual formation. Time intentionally set aside for God, in order to be in a quiet place where all our senses are open and ready to be as fully present as we can be to God, ourselves, and the moment – to keep company with God. Thus we hear His voice, and answer. #continuingthegoodworkthelordhasbegun... See MoreSee Less

Annual retreats are one of the powerful ways we are Building to SERVE our youth and families. A retreat that is geared to youth or families takes months of preparation in order to create a unique opportunity to explore faith and experience belonging in a new way. To borrow from St. Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, we offer retreats “so that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts, living within you as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love; and may you be able to feel and understand, as all God’s children should, how long, how wide, how deep, and how high his love really is; and to experience this love for yourselves...Ephesians 3:16 #continuingthegoodworkthelordhasbegun...

In today’s gospel, Jesus is passing by. A blind man kept calling out, "Son of David, have pity on me!" Jesus asked him, "What do you want me to do for you?" He replied, "Lord, please let me see." Jesus told him, "Have sight; your faith has saved you." He immediately received his sight and followed him, giving glory to God.
