Those in whom the Spirit comes to live are God’s new Temple. They are, individually and corporately, places where heaven and earth meet.
— N.T. Wright, Simply Christian

Welcome

Welcome to the 2018 Members' Retreat! 

This retreat provides us a unique time to connect with each other and with God without the demand of our schedules and the distractions of the City. Our hearts long for renewal and this retreat is one way we are asking God to fulfill that longing. Through this time of disengagement together, we trust that God will renew in us all that is necessary for our re-engagement in the work he is doing through us in the city.
