April 17 - April 19, 2020
Theme: Resurrection and Recovery. At New Community we say, “We are all in recovery from something and ultimately dependent on the power that raised Jesus from the dead for our recovery and healing.” New Community is a “Resurrection and Recovery Church.” Our time on silent retreat at Dayspring is one aspect of our recovery process and of our openness to the presence and power of the crucified and risen Lord Jesus.
Leader: To be announced.
For New Community Church. Others welcome as space permits.
Weekend retreats run Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. The silence begins Friday night after dinner when the leader opens the retreat and introduces the theme. The leader usually offers brief meditations with morning and evening prayers on Saturday. The silence ends late-morning Sunday with a time of sharing and worship, followed by lunch and departure.
The cost for weekend retreats is $235. To reserve a space, please send a $100 deposit with an application you can print from the application page, or pay on line by going to the application page and clicking on payment options.
Dinner on Friday at 7 pm is the first official gathering. You are welcome to arrive and settle in between 3:30 and 6:30 pm on Friday. The retreat will end by 2 pm on Sunday. It is important that you come on a weekend when you can stay for the whole retreat.
