Prayer Retreat: Joy!

From Sun. afternoon, Nov. 3 to Sat. morning, Nov. 9, we will be having our annual Prayer Retreat at First PC. Those who sign up (the Retreatants) agree to meet at 2:00 at the church for two hours Sunday afternoon, Nov. 3, where they will learn about Praying Scripture. They will also receive a package of material. This year the theme is JOY!

For 30 minutes each day of the following week, they agree to read the short scripture packages and meditation for that day, and then to journal and pray about anything they found thought-provoking in the material. Each day, the Retreatants will come to church for a private 30-minute session with a Companion trained in listening and in helping them to see God's hand at work. These sessions are held at times that are convenient for the Retreatants.

Saturday morning, at 9:00, Nov. 9, the week will conclude with a potluck breakfast, worship and communion. Please give prayerful thought to participating. Everyone is welcome to attend but we need to know by Oct 27 if you are interested. Registration forms are in the Sunday leaflets or you can contact Donna Drapkin. If you need more info or have any questions, please speak to Donna at 705-533-2339 or email
