From Sun. afternoon, Nov. 3 to Sat. morning, Nov. 9, we will be having our 8th annual Prayer Retreat at First PC. This year the theme is JOY! Those who sign up (the Retreatants) agree to meet at the church for two hours Sunday afternoon, Nov. 3, where they will learn how to Pray Scripture. They will also receive a package of material.
For 30 minutes each day following, they agree to read the four short scripture packages and meditation for that day, and to journal and pray about anything they found interesting in the material. Then each day, the Retreatants will come to church for a 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, Nov. 9, the week will conclude with a potluck breakfast, worship and communion. Please give prayerful thought to participating. You are welcome whether or not you have ever prayed before. All you need is a sincere desire to come closer to God. Application forms are in the Sunday leaflet. Questions? Speak to Donna Drapkin (705-533-2339) or firstname.lastname@example.org .
