“Coming to our Senses”

Adult, small group-retreat

April 28 – 30th at Toah Nipi Retreat Center, Rindge NH

Spring is the season when our natural world begins to wake up from its winter sleep and make ready for a new season and summer. It is when the frozen earth thaws; bears and their cousins emerge; tree sap flows. It is when many of our birds return home from their far away travels; and when our lakes and streams rebound with oodles of life. With all this stirring – “mixing memory with desire”, the woods and fields become filled and pungent with ancient and new smells and sights and sounds and sensations that trigger and feeds our own world and imagination.  Let us take up Spring’s invitation and “Come to our Senses”.

Beginning at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, April 28th and running through Sunday morning, April 30th, we will gather at the beautiful, wilderness setting of Toah Nipi Retreat Center, in Rindge New Hampshire (http://toahnipi.intervarsity.org/).  Using the writing of some of America’s great nature writers to guide us, we will take time to engage our senses in awakening to the beauty and blessing of being alive. Over the course of the weekend there will be a balance of both time together for listening, sensing, sharing, learning and fun and time alone for journaling, quiet reflection, or simply downtime and rest..

While the cost for the retreat is $110/person (2 nights and four meals), we do not want that to be an obstacle for anyone. Most importantly, we want you to come!  Contribute if and how much you are able.

Please note, this is a small group retreat, for 10-12 adults from our congregational family.  This offering is in addition to our beloved, intergenerational, All-Church retreat is scheduled for October 20-22nd, at Rolling Ridge Conference and Retreat Center in North Andover, MA.  Information/registration for our All Church retreat will be forthcoming later this spring.

If you are interested in attending this spring, small group-retreat, or if you would like to learn more, please speak with Tom Vawter or Pastor Stacy.   The registration form for the retreat is available here.  Registrations are due by March 30th.

No Sunday Morning Bible Discussion @ Pastor Stacy's Study

We gather every Sunday from 8 – 9:00 am to study scripture and reflect on how God’s word informs our living today. Instead of following a curriculum, we simply choose a book of the Bible and read it out loud together, pausing as we do to reflect on what the text is saying and how it may impact our lives today.  No previous Bible study or Biblical literacy is needed.  Come every Sunday or come when you can.  All are welcome.

Prayer Group @ Memorial Chapel/UCW

On Wednesday mornings from 7:30 – 8:15 am we gather in the small chapel off the sanctuary for prayer. This time of prayer called “Living Water” is based on the passage in John’s Gospel where Jesus encounters the Samaritan women at the well (John 4:14). It gives us an opportunity to drink in the stillness of the peace and presence of God so that we will be filled and will not thirst as we go into the busyness of our weeks. We begin with 20 minutes of centering/meditative silence afterwards we light candles of prayers for celebrations and/or concerns we may have.
