Join us February 26th & 27th for a chance to reset during this weary season, and prepare for the Lent season. 82 Westheights Dr. will be open 24 hours, from 3pm-3pm, for anyone needing a space to come for a few hours to reflect, breathe, pray, or just be still. Stations to encourage contemplative practices will be available for anyone to go through at their own pace.
This will be a self-guided retreat with stations you can go through at your own pace. Go through all the stations, or find one that is really what is what you need and stay in that space for the whole time. This is a time to reconnect with God, and to reconnect with yourself. To rest. To reset. Come by yourself, or invite others to come do a self-guided retreat at the same time you are, so that you may reflect on the station afterwards together.
We will provide a writing booklet and materials specific to the contemplative stations, but if you prefer your own journal and Bible, bring it along!
Have questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
WHO: Anyone that needs a space to reset, reflect, and be with God. Please note: Children who understand the idea of reflective practices are welcome, but we ask that they are accompanied by a guardian.
WHAT: Bring nothing, or bring what you need to settle into a space of personal reflection with God – journal, Bible, water bottle, etc. Note: One of the contemplative stations does take place outside, weather permitting. Please bring outdoor things that will keep you warm as you walk through it.
WHEN: Anytime between 3pm on February 26th, and 3pm on February 27th, for however short or long you need.
WHERE: 82 Westheights Church
@Home: Want to participate in the retreat from home? Sign up to receive the @home materials here
ACCESSIBILITY NOTE: Some of the contemplative stations take place in the lower level of the church. As our building doesn’t have a lift, if you’re unable to do stairs, there is a door to access the lower level at the outer back of the church, weather permitting, that our volunteers can open for you. If you have any questions about this, please ask our volunteers day of, or email email@example.com ahead of time.
