Connecting with God
Saturday, September 21, 2013
8am - 5pm with dinner following
As we look toward becoming disciples of God who are transformed by our faith and each other, we need to develop some disciplines that will help us shape our lives. The more we connect with God, the more able we are to connect God with others.
THE FOCUS: Join us on Saturday, 9.21.13, to examine ways that we connect with God and discern the disciplines that speak most directly to each of us as individuals. We will be using the book, Connecting With God for our retreat but you will not need the book for the retreat itself. Afterwards, if you are interested, we will begin a bi-weekly bible study to complete the book. The retreat will be complete whether or not you do the bible study. (The book will be provided for those who want to participate in the bible study.)
THE DAY: A continental breakfast will be provided from 8am - 8:45 when we will have a short worship. The sessions will begin at 9am. We will conclude our day with a short worship at 5pm which will be followed by dinner, which will also be provided.

There is no cost to you to participate in this retreat. It will be held at The Fairfield Marriott Inn, Lombard, IL - Just East of I-355 on North Ave (Rte 64)
