FW101 Retreat Info & Registration

2018 Faithwalking 101 and Ridder/CLC Retreat #1

When/Where:
There are a few options for upcoming FW101:
  • Sept 8 & 15, 2018, Church on the Hill, Flushing, NY
    • Two Saturday 'day retreats'
    • Both day retreats begin promptly at 9 a.m. and conclude by 6 p.m.
    • Lunch and snacks included both days

    • Beginning Saturday morning at 9 a.m. and conclude on Sunday by 5 p.m.
Who:

Clergy and non-clergy alike get much out of FW101, as we all are invited into the journey of spiritual transformation!  
Faithwalking mainly focuses on spiritual formation for adults, yet young adults are welcome.    

What is included:

A shame-free environment is provided for you to learn through presentations, times of solitude and prayer, small group sharing, and large group reflection.  You will receive a workbook for the retreat with key information on each session, which will also be your solitude guide.

What to bring:

Please bring a Bible, a writing utensil, and a non-distracting way to keep time (smartphones may be convenient, but they will distract you).  A jacket or coat might be needed for those cool autumn days, should you want to venture outside during your times of solitude or after we are done in the evening.
An open and prayerful spirit is always good as well.

Sponsors:  

These retreats are such a bargain because of the partnership between the Reformed Church in America with the Regional Synods of Albany, New York, and Mid Atlantics as a part of Churches Learning Change (formerly Ridder Church Renewal) in conjunction with the New York Faithwalking Circle.  ALL ARE WELCOME!  Presbyterian, Lutheran, United Church of Christ, Methodist... any affiliation or those with no church affiliation are all welcome to participate.
