Often we see Jesus seeking solitude: sometimes an early morning walk, sometimes forty days in the desert, sometimes leaving His closest disciples to watch while He went off a few yards to pray. Throughout His ministry the gospel writers show us Jesus, slipping away to be with his Father.
If Jesus needed to, how much more must we.
The goal of Newim's silent retreats is to provide an opportunity for women to be strengthened in their walk with Jesus and grow in the knowledge of His will. The one-day silent retreat provides an opportunity for deeper communion with the Lord through an extended time of reflection, prayer and meditation.
The day begins at 9 a.m. with a brief time of fellowship and introduction of the retreat theme passage. Participants will then observe the practice of silence in order to be more present with the Lord. There is not a set schedule for the day, however there are optional reflection practices available to enhance the retreat experience. The retreats are held in comfortable home and garden settings. A light breakfast and lunch will be served and the day concludes at 3 p.m.
Fall 2017 retreats are completed.
