Contemplative Retreat (Cypress)

Registration deadline is November 9th, 10pm. Space is limited to 16 participants.

A Contemplative Retreat is the practice of pulling away from our normal everyday activities to be still and present before God. Jesus often retreated to a quiet place to pray (Mark 1:35). In the midst of ministry busyness, Jesus recognized his disciples’ weariness and beckoned them, “Come away with me to a quiet place and rest” (Mark 6:31). Today, Jesus continues to call out to us, “Get away with me and I’ll teach you how to take a real rest” (Matthew 11:28). What is most needed to take a spiritual retreat is a willing heart. From time to time, we need the company of hospitable friends who would dig a hole in a roof to help clear a path for us to Jesus (Mark 2:1-12).

Brief segments of the day will be spent introducing you to spiritual formation topics and practices — but there will also be blocks of time dedicated to silence, solitude, prayer, and reflection. Retreat participants have the option to meet with a spiritual director.
