2020 FW101 Retreats
April 17 - 19, 2020
Beginning at 7 p.m. Friday (after dinner), concluding by 4 p.m. Sunday.
Includes a 2-night stay and 5 meals.
Hosted at Warwick Conference Center, Warwick, NY
Deadline to Register is April 3
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.
