Day retreats are a wonderful way to bind a group together in Christ. These day retreats require 6-7 hours which includes two breaks and a meal. Those planning a retreat are responsible for arranging for a suitable location, A/V equipment, refreshments and a meal.
"Be Ye Transformed"
Using the movie “Regarding Henry” Participants discover how scriptures are relevant to their daily lives by following the lives and relationships of the characters in the movie. The format consists of watching the movie with several breaks to read and reflect on the elements of the story and the scriptural and relational messages. The retreat concludes with personal meditation time at several worship centers created by the group, followed by an opportunity to share about the overall experience.
"A Faith Journey"
Using the Tom Conti movie “Saving Grace” participants explore their own spiritual journey as they follow the journey of the movie’s characters. The retreat consists of watching the movie in chunks and reflecting on the story with relevant scriptures and personal experience. Small group sharing and individual reflection time are included. The retreat concludes with personal meditation time at several worship centers created by the group followed by an opportunity to share about the overall experience.
"My Cup Runneth Over"
Using the symbol of the cup, this retreat opens with an exercise to identify how our cups are overflowing right now and then in a meditation empty them to prepare to receive the Spirit. The cup images explored are the empty cup, the clean cup, the broken cup, the cup of compassion, the cup of joy, and the cup of gratitude. The retreat ends with a blessing of each others cups. Each participant receives a cup which they use throughout the retreat and take home with them.
