During the weekend of Friday, February 5 through Saturday, February 6, our entire church body is invited to be a part of a Spiritual Renewal Retreat that will be held in the Great Room and will be led by Jeanie Miley. Jeanie, who is from Houston, Texas, is a gifted writer, retreat leader, and spiritual director. She is the author of twelve books and has written a weekly newspaper column, Growing Edges, for 36 years.
The theme for our retreat is Lent: A Call to Love. Friday evening’s session, Love for Self, will begin with a light supper at 6:00 p.m. and conclude at 8:30 p.m. The retreat will continue on Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. with a gathering time around coffee and doughnuts. There will be two sessions on Saturday with lunch served in between. The sessions on Saturday will focus on Love for Others and Love for God. The retreat will conclude by 2:00 p.m.
In order for everyone to be involved in this time of renewal, there will be special retreat activities planned for our preschoolers, children, and youth. They will have the opportunity to experience a time of active learning and fun of their own.
Let’s make 2016 a time for spiritual renewal and growth. Mark February 5 and 6 off on your calendar, and make plans to be a part of this exciting weekend at Highland Hills.
