    Advent Retreat Schedule

    The Advent Retreat provides time and space to quiet yourself so that you can hear from God. Throughout the retreat, we will invite you to experiment with silence and reduce your use of technology.


    Friday, December 11

    4:00 pm - Check-in and settle into your room. Begin the process of quieting your mind and heart. Connect with home so you can set the stage for a peaceful retreat.
    5:00 - Dinner service
    7:00-7:30 - Welcome & Orientation | "Why Silence?" | Matthew 26:36-46

    Your silence begins immediately following this session. You may speak with staff but otherwise we encourage you to remain in silence until the testimony time on Sunday Morning. Of course, speaking aloud to God is appropriate when you're alone or outside!
