Resilient Faith

Sharing stories and practices for sustaining rich faith in a post-Christian world


Our annual Women's Retreat is coming up on Saturday, April 30th.  It will take place in person at the church.  

The retreat will start at 9:00 am with worship, teaching and workshops. The afternoon is free for you to retreat, rest, be creative OR to join in with some optional activities we have planned. The church will be open for coffee and conversation throughout the afternoon.  We will get together at 5:30 pm for a catered dinner* in the Lower Auditorium and our evening session of worship and teaching will begin at 7:00 pm.

We hope that you will set aside the day to join in ~ our desire is to grow closer to God and to connect as a community.

Led by Rachel Maddock. In this workshop we will gently warm up, do some stretching, and get in tune with our bodies and spirits!
