Please read all the information below, before registering.
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). Layers and warm clothes will be needed, bring additional outdoor gear should you want to venture outside during your times of solitude or during breaks.
An open and prayerful spirit is always good as well.
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.

Should you wish to pay online via credit card, you will need a PayPal account to finish the registration process (setting up a PayPal account is simple and safe).
If you wish to pay by personal check or if your church will be paying for all or part of your cost, you will be able to enter the discount code "SendCheck" to bypass the online payment requirement.

**Normally failure to send payment two weeks in advance of the retreat will result in the cancelation of your participation in the retreat. However, with COVID uncertainty, invoices will be emailed when the event takes place.
