Prayer Retreat 2019

November 6-9, 2019

Montezuma Retreat Center
Montezuma, Ohio

Part 1. Wednesday, Nov. 6 from 5:00 PM through Friday, Nov. 8 at Noon.

How do we use scripture to become more aware of the elements God has given us to live out God’s mission as healthier people and live in healthier communities? We will dwell in the spiritual world of Jonah and learn about the different elements of earth, water, and wind that God uses to transform our lives. We will also have personal time for the spiritual practices of journaling, sacred reading, and creative art.

Part 2. Friday, Nov. 8 from 4:00 PM through Saturday, Nov. 9 at 3:00 PM

Who knew abiding in God’s word and practicing the spiritual life together could be so much fun! Join us as we dwell in Acts and learn about the other two spiritual elements of fire and space to empower us to become healthy spiritual leaders in our own communities. We will focus on the spiritual practices of healthy eating and meal planning and getting our bodies moving through prayer walking or yoga.

You can sign up for the whole retreat or you can pick one!
